Survey Results

Another middle of the night survey

of all that’s wrong

with the world and me – 

and another chance to practice.

 This time I’ll try that ancient form

of  meditation, tonglen.

I’ll breathe in fear, foolishness, and hate

and breathe out their antidotes,

courage, wisdom, and love.

When the air is filled with these,

perhaps I’ll find my way to restful sleep.
