Thoughts which are Unconducive to Meditation:

Thoughts which are Unconducive to Meditation:

Thoughts next to a river should be easy to quiet,

But the predictable trickle isn’t so tranquil.

Breathe. Exhale. Breathe.

I try to focus on a word, on a sound,

Only to be interrupted by a bird,

By a rustle, by heavy thoughts

about urban sprawl.

Is it the virus of the century or

beauty in the eye of the beholder?


Must push the thoughts from my head, refocus on my breathing.

Breathe. Exhale. Breathe.

If I can’t escape the words themselves,

A rhythm perhaps to narrow them:

Need to feed,

Need to seed,

Want to grow,

Need to know,

Fed with greed,

Drank like mead,

Breathe. Exhale. Breathe.

Happiness momentarily grasped,

Control finally released. 

Music is love is magic is music.

Music is love is magic is music.

I had seen something on Sunday Morning or 60 minutes about this idea, but I had never seen the results of it. Now, seeing it, my heart overflows with joy. It makes me want to research the implications of TBIs and Alzheimer’s and shaken baby syndrome and comas and persistent vegetative states and all neurological issues….overbroad? maybe.

Maybe not.

I just learned about a study regarding music and math pilot program:


Music is magic. 

It stimulates places in the brain that are thought to be incapable of regeneration.

We as a species do not even know the half of it. 🙂
