In Silence

I sit in silence.

In this moment where my mind runs wild.
Now seize the present.

My breath slows into a rhythm as my heart pounds.
Can you feel it?

It moves through me like a wave of fire.
Let go and drown in it.

With every breath my life slips so far.
Wait one more minute.

I know this place. Where have I been?
Right here. In silence.

Not sure what inspired this

but I was just reflecting on my meditation practices.
