I have been holding my morning mediation for almost 5 years now...
It transitions as I transition. There are many things I bring to this sacred space, but one thing remains the same: I allow this space to release words from inside of me through writing.
When I am centered and in the presence of silent waiting, this is what I feel: My thoughts are pulled from me, and I am brought to hold all of it in the breath of now.

When All That Matters
by Maureen Kwiat Meshenberg
when all that matters,
is pulled from out of you-
laid before you with eyes seeing,
beholding the vision of it-
the belonging it brings,
more than memory or-
thought or reason,
it is clear as the silver-
reflecting water in a pool,
as it reflects who you are-
silently rising to meet,
the cloudless sky,
earth and air merging into-
one quiet pause,
for the rest all falls away-
when the silence beckons,
you to be still-
and you take it with gentle hands,
as a lotus from the water,
as a bird perched-
on the branch of an oak tree,
touching the sun with gladness-
I take this clear moment,
and hold it in the breath of now.
