    I KNOW CLARITY

    I sit erect
    hands resting gently on my thighs
    palms slightly upturned
    Inhale
    Exhale through the O that is my mouth
    I count to ten
    Outside the birds converse
    loudly
    freeway traffic sounds drift on the morning breeze
    the refrigerator hums
    cycles on and off
    I count to ten
    again
    breathing in
    and out
    My mind wants to talk
    BE STILL
    I hear the words floating
    behind my eyes
    I count again
    Breathing slows
    Chatter ceases
    Silence arrives
    Floating stillness
    aware
    but not there
    until
    the timer ting, tings
    I draw air deeply in
    breathing myself back,
    back,
    back to now
    to the life grounded
    here
    within the ME
    earthbound body
    but clarity accompanies
    me to
    bless my day
