Invitation to Peace

I watch the incense rise.

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 safe and lucky

by our desires
I watch 
the incense 

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

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.
