Invitation to Peace

early morning
these days
no T.V.
no radio
prone to quietness

I meditate
everyday the same way
like sitting
on a rabbit's foot
I feel lucky

bound 
by our desires
I watch 
the incense 
rise

clouds
turn into rain
turn into
spring flowers
no birth   no death

a yogini
blossoms in the night
unbound
by the clarity 
of daylight

busy busy busy
thoughts busy buzzing
clear the space
toss them out
watch them fly

before 
they 
fall 
catch 
moments

These are tanka that come to me as I meditate. I have aligned them into a tanka series.

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
