Taking Control

I am eyes closed,
calm floats,
heart beats,
breath rhythmic
maintenance dose required.

Thoughts undulate,
sounds acute,
louder, soft,
white noise,
control recovered.

Smiling inside,
headspace filled
joyous thoughts
full sail
drifting happily....

I missed this one. It is always hard to meditate in modern life. You describe how to do it well. I wish I still could.
