Zen

 

Come with me to paradise 

On a path to selfless ecstasy

Where mindfulness resides

In now and present ease

 

Future thoughts incumber 

This quiet searched nirvana

Past memories disappear 

In gentle rhythmic exhalation

 

Not for the faint of heart

Nor distracted or demanding

The essence of this zen

Lays in conscious hollows

Yes, very well written, Joe. Members of Coo & Co would readily take up an invitation to present ease. We like the flow of this poem and the final 'conscious hollows' :>)
