The Untamed Mind
Where the mind, untamed, might go
in pale light brings curious effects;
silence flits across deep water breaths.
Ripples like secret wings flitting
inaudibly across the still air above
pools giving pause for contemplation.
Watching the world from a good way,
mutely gazing as meditation stammers
Where might the mind go, untamed?
Unstirred, unhurried, unfathomable
light dancing, moving quietly,
across the untamed mind.
