To the Top of the Mountain

higher plain awaits
beyond the body’s boundaries
sweet meditation
with each breath another step
to the mountain’s snowy peak

My response to Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #26 meditation

Today our prompt is ‘meditation’ and Chèvrefeuille has shared a few haiku and a tanka to inspire us:

dervishes whirling
seeking a higher consciousness –
third eye opens

chanting their mantra
broomstick and rake in hand
true meditation

peace of mind
lotuses reach for the sun
growing from the dark

deep meditation
high up in the mountains
a Buddhist monk
even he violates chastity
watching a geisha
