Day Retreat

Sitting patiently
While the mind

Scampers and jumps about

Chasing thoughts and ideas

Until suddenly observed

It lets go of its quarry

And takes a moment’s

Pause


~


Sitting quietly

While the mind

Gently observes the senses

Sights, sounds, smells, sensations

Allowed to be

Just as they are

For a moment

Now
