Mental Hegira

IMG_0555

As I stand on the precipice
I slow down my brain
Away from the city noise
Listening to my breathing
My steady heartbeat
The wind swirling around me
Carrying the sounds of voices
Ancestors who stood here before me
The caw of the crow
Observing me with amusement
For he already knows
What I am learning
To quiet myself
And let it be

In the night sky
Blink of an eye
A life passes by
Burning brightly with abandon

The sun slides
Between the clouds
Parting pink lips

Evanescent dawn
Pain dissipates into mist
Reflects forgiveness

Reflection

IMG_6824

Pause
To take a look
Deep inside

Sometimes
What seems like the best hiding place
Gives us a false sense of security
When what we are really doing
Is trying to hide from ourselves
