incense smoke. chant meditate. give thanks.
gratitude for power. gratitude for ability. gratitude for friendship and support.
repeat these words, encased in bass.
repeat these words, until you fall into them.
repeat these words, make them true.
calligraphic letters become character. holding the brush that painted them. brushing phrases onto blankness, seen in the mind’s eye.
repeat these words.
pray for those who came before. pray for friends. pray for success, happiness, peace. pray for self and others.
innercity morning. expressway traffic humming into the chant. birdsong adding blips of high-pitched.
unexpected appreciated gift of sunlight and warmth, this autumn morning.
beautiful send-off for the end of an era. beautiful welcome for the beginning of a new phase.
