Morning Prayer

BY FRANK J. TASSONE · 16TH NOVEMBER 2017

Haibun

Robins, sparrows, and cardinal songs through an open window. Bacon sizzling from the kitchen. The flickering tongue of an indifferent Senhora da Fatima Candle in a drape-rustling breeze.

Seated on the zafu, legs folded on the zabuton. A tenuous hold of intention through a frail vessel of awareness. Breathing.

Presence. Calm reassurance resonating from the gut. Still there.

Always, “I am.”

 

moistening eyes…

sound of birdsongs and wind

another breath
