Laying a Mindful Egg

hen's nest.JPG

The hen must put in the time,
the effort
She must slow down,
practice patience
She must sit and sit and sit
for her eggs to hatch

Just so, meditators
cannot just wish to be enlightened

They must put in the time,
the effort
They must slow down,
practice patience
They must sit and sit and sit
for mindfulness to hatch

 

Special thanks to my friend Penny for helping
with the revision of this poem.
