…robin takes me away…to meditation

Robin’s Meditation

Robin’s call takes me away
….to another shore
where time has no meaning,
where thoughts exist no more.
Clamoring, clinging shouts
persistently demanding tenant’s rights…
demanding to maintain residence
are losing the battle…
in the joyful call of the robin.

Empty rooms are found and
spaciousness is once again the king

Silence rings its bell
and the unfamiliar taste of rest
is the gift
to welcome new guests like me.

Always follow a robin’s call.
This is life lived.

Robin…Winner of American Idol?

Oh Robin!! Joyful messenger of hope…
Singer, songwriter, bringer of life.
Just a few little notes
Can say so much.
You bring to me this song, a message of joy,
“Spring is coming! Don’t despair. Nothing lasts forever.”

My heart fills up with the joy of your song…
Till it feels it would explode into fireworks of joy.
Your lovely song wakens my sleeping soul.

Then suddenly you’re gone….
To find another heart to waken.

Who is it that could have sent you?
Who would have trusted so tiny a creature
To deliver so huge a message?

You surely must have won American Idol
Because you won my heart!

(Who’s your favorite on American Idol?  The robin outside my window still gets my vote!!)
