Meditative Thoughts by Rachael Holmes

Inhale the bitter cold,
Burning my cheeks,
Inflamed, blushing,
In pulsing thought.

Exhale warmth,
Watch it dance in a mist,
Before succumbing
To the seductive breeze.

A relaxing zephyr
Becomes intrusive.
Meditation demands
The mutually exclusive:
Reflect and dismiss the abyss.

The mind settles, though actively seeks,
To breathe memories, I refuse to release.

This poem was inspired by our Weekly Writing Prompt #45. Find more of Rachael’s work on her website: www.myfreshpages.wordpress.com

  2. An attention-grabbing dialogue is value comment. I believe that it’s best to write extra on this matter, it may not be a taboo subject but generally persons are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
