Siren

A siren
woke me
up
while I was
meditating
entering
on an inhalation
No
I wasn’t
asleep
I mean
not
the nighttime kind
but the asleep
of not Awake
You might be
asleep
too
right now
even though
you are feeling
in to words
about Awakeness
I am not
criticizing
you
We are all
the same
Next time
you
will remind
me
like the siren
deeply urgent exhale
cutting through
the chaos
of traffic
trying to save
a life

  1. Hey Modern Monk! We are on call with John’s Nicaraguan family, first time since massacres and shutdowns. Hoping Ortega steps down asap. So sad and scary. I’ll be in touch in next day or so. Thank you SO MUCH for being in touch… Kisen
