Sitting Meditation

My dog Toby

came into the room,

took one look at my frazzled face, 

and sat down by my side.

He offered no sage advice.

 He didn’t remind me

that others had it worse.

He didn’t try to cheer me up.

He simply came and sat.

Sometimes a friendly,

wordless presence

is all we need.
