Join the gang!

Thursday

The open door

The words have left.
There are no descriptions
no dialogues, no arguments.

This light does not need colors.
Sound is a harsh interruption
in the transparent wave of silence
blissful in its emptiness.

A state of being.
Just
being.

    in the transparent wave of silence...'

  8. Very beautiful piece. I wish I was there in that meditative space. Sometimes it is so hard to turn it all off and just be. Thank you for the reminder of the necessity of just being.

  9. Kristen, this was an inspiring prompt. Thanx.

    You know, I had read somewhere that getting into meditative space even for a few seconds is very difficult. Guess we must all keep letting go rather than trying, and then we will be..

  17. I know the implications of an open door. When its open because some one left without care, opportunity, fear and panic(when it is not wanted or expected) but I would not have thought of them if you had not written this. excellent idea.
