Mashup: Meditation

Sit in water that is over your head,

As if a bird in your hair should be left asleep.

Gaze silently on the Word.

Ask nothing, offer no advice, and when your monkey mind

does monkey, care not; do care about your breath,

your hands, and watch the sun melt on the hill.

And even monkeys need a home eventually

so, listen, East, the Spirit deep imbedded

never ceases gathering the monkey clan

like mother spreads her skirts

to sing a lullaby which quiets

all who don’t wander off.
