an ancient discipline…

an ancient discipline

aunt bea
warmly smiled
as i discussed
a recent
management workshop
on
centering
to maintain
personal life balance
she listen attentively
to my summary
and then
took
a deep breath
and
said
personally
i find
the warmth of love
to be
the counter-balance
to life’s chaos
a true
personal love
i can’t convey it
in those clinical terms
you just used
but
the feeling’s
like
a lover’s flesh
pressed against yours
as the new day begins
that moment
that floods your soul
with all
the inner peace
possible
meditating
on that moment
throughout the day
shields the soul
from thorny
events
and
people
