Nested Meditation

Nested Meditation
I recently read an article by Kevin Anderson called “The Nested Meditation.” His directions for writing one was that each stanza is a place where you can pause to meditate. The very first stanza is simply one line. The next stanza continues beyond what you wrote in the first stanza and again you can pause. This one that I wrote when I was in the mountains of Virginia has seven stanzas. Read it slowly. Meditate. Then try writing one of your own.

Thank You

Thank you for moon.

Thank you for moon
and mountains.

Thank you for moon.
And mountains hover far behind
the birdfeeder.

Thank you for moon.
And mountains hover far behind
the birdfeeder,
where tiny tufted titmouse
and black capped chickadee
flit to feed.

Thank you for moon.
And mountains hover far behind
the birdfeeder.
Where tiny tufted titmouse
and black capped chickadee
flit to feed,
is the same spot
where busy squirrels
dance on trees.

Thank you for moon.
And mountains hover far behind
the birdfeeder.
Where tiny tufted titmouse
and black capped chickadee
flit to feed,
is the same spot
where busy squirrels
dance on trees
in front of barking dachshunds.

Thank you for moon.
And mountains hover far behind
the birdfeeder.
Where tiny tufted titmouse
and black capped chickadee
flit to feed,
is the same spot
where busy squirrels
dance on trees
in front of barking dachshunds,
all shouting:
Thanks for moon
and mountains.
