The Empty Mind

The Full Mind

The Mind that Wants

And the mind that doesn’t want anything

If you step outside of what you sense

for long enough

The mind goes to a different place

A place without borders

A Universe

A Sea of Space

In a journey beyond this body

What can we find

shifting through this emptiness

in the fog

In a forest of green trees

You can hear them grow

You can smell the black soil

As you move into the heart of the wood

You find children playing

at different ages

One is throwing a baseball

Another is striking a golf ball

A young adult is reading 

The Invisible Man

And you see yourself

reflected in a pool of water

There you sit

looking at your computer screen

And you realize 

you are five minutes late

to a meeting
