Today, Here, Now

During meditation, the resonance of Himalayan singing bowls relaxes me like nothing else.  These beautiful bowls were a gift to me from my husband, who knows I have an affinity for things that “hum” like distant planes and trains, power lines, filter pumps, etc. (which also surface in my poetry).  


I rise up

shoulders reach for one another

heart scoops forward 

opens with expression

muscle memory activated 

does not need a thought; 

like a snake, energy squeezed 

through my legs as one 

spine-lifting burst 

drops to ground zero

strength, awareness, impact;

real life.
