Meditating By the River

The morning was calm
The sky was azure
It was time to visit my navel
The deepest part of my being
The very center of my existence
So my mat I spread
On the banks of river Tiang’
Adopted my posture of comfort
Right leg on top of the left leg
Right fist encased in left palm
‘Twas time to close my eyes
But there was too much to see
Bees sapping from the flowers
Their buzz a fine meditation tune
Swallow birds fighting their shadows
Causing ripples on the surface of the water
Praying mantis in a prayer session
Creating an air of serenity
Like a monk in his inner peace time
And a tsetse fly struggling to break free
From the traps of a spider
As the spider wove the shreds
Like a veteran puppeteer
There wouldn’t be closing eyes today
I will look at the waters, fathom the depth
I will listen to the sirens
Of a merry sunbird
Sabai can never be this close
