Morning Meditation

One early morning before my husband stirred from his sleepy serenity, I awoke to a foot of beautiful white snow at the mountain lodge we had retreated to for our anniversary week. I stood in the falling bliss-flakes from God and stared into the rushing oncoming river, losing myself in her trips and falls until she finally disappeared in the distance. This was the meditation I wrote that morning.

oh Great River…

you who source from

I know not where

who rush through the

tiny acreage

of this one life

creating mighty songs of

choral flowing…

orchestral pounding…

on the rocks of my ego

as You pour forth

never beginning…

…never ending

like this mountain

lactating its glacial

milk, providing

nourishment for

thirsty souls

all appears still

around your infinite presence

snowflakes gently fall

upon the branches

of my understanding

bringing winter

to my growth time

stopping me in my tracks

for one moment in time…

to pause… …and look

…and see you

…and hear you

…and allow

your pounding life energy

to soothe me

…and re-member

how good it feels

run through me

run through this small world

flow over my busy mind

bringing hypothermia to

my ignorance

flow off this land

on and on toward

the vast ocean of Love

surrounding Earth…

you who changes

sweet to salty…

creating

yet another world

beyond mine,

where magnificent

life forms dwell.

may I re-member

myself to this

snapshot in

time and place

so I may again

stop in my tracks…

to pause… …and look

…and see you

…and hear you

…and allow

your pounding life energy

to soothe me

…and re-member

how good it feels
