Three More Poems of a Pandemic

The Day

The grayness of the day lingered.

Anxiety pulsed into the edges.

Meditation struggled to calm.

Masked medicals added tension to the day.

Groceries arrived with gaps.

Educated added slivers of paranoia.

Walking outside glimpsed normalcy briefly.

Bedtime provided cushion for the gray.

Teaching of the Red-Tailed Hawk

the large wings of the

red-tailed hawk swish air until

she catches a wind draft

then – yes then – she glides

I too in uncertainty

move myself around

‘till I catch the draft

of air and then I relax

I let go in wind

“remember” I tell

myself – “you can create

hawk’s quiet – just glide”

Twenty Minutes

searching for magic in meditation

my breath moves out and in – out and in

muscles hold tensions

mantra begins to sound inside my being

out and in my breath moves out and in

ache to arrive somewhere

mantra reverberates into nothing

time disappears

arriving disappears

questions slip away

time irrelevant

hold on to nothing

no questions

no muscles

no holding

only – meditation
