I sit cross legged facing the sun with my eyes closed.
I can feel a cool Spring breeze on my face.
My eyelids feel warm and rosy.
I listen to the sounds near by and far away of water and birds.
Other small sounds and big.
With conscious smooth inhale and exhale of breath
I contemplate life. Thoughts floating around in my head.
Things I need to do later today, tomorrow, next week.
I open my eyes slightly to see my dogs sniffing near by through my eyelashes.
They watch me too.
But they know now to keep to themselves when I am in this pose.
The thoughts in my head disappear.
I am just here.
