Too many thoughts. My mind a tangle of footpaths.

Meditation One

I realize I've been clenching my teeth.
I wonder for how long.

Meditation Two

The quiet roar of water.

Meditation Three

I begin to unbraid my memories.

Meditation Four

The wild silence of sunlight.

Meditation Five

Flight is easy, pushing from a solid perch.

Meditation Six

I rise from myself.

Meditation Seven

I am endless, a golem of all things.

Meditation Eight

There's always something blocking the way, holding me back.

Meditation Nine

The sky and I have yet to meet.

Meditation Ten
