Meditation Interrupted – a poem by Judy De Croce

Meditation Interrupted


In this space of trees and hush,
searching the edges, seeking a center;
eyes close, focus, erase and begin. 

down a mine of calm
settling like an airship
where I watch losing myself

separating from inner voices
standing and vacant,
searching for emptiness
under a curious neglect of time.

I hear the past where those loved are held,
stretching forward on a slip of life—
interrupting my way of silence

and yes, you and I,
are caught there too

           focus,
                      erase,
                                 begin anew…
