What Matters

Slow breathing in the early morning.
The wind, raging wild outside the window.
An untroubled mind.

Shelter. Food. Warmth.
A heart resting quiet.
An untroubled mind.

Focus only on this.
A peaceful house.
A gentle cupping.

Feel your mind un-troubling.
Feel your heart nesting, and
Slowly learning a new, steady beat.

As the wind rages outside the house.
As the wolves howl their threats.
As all the threads of the familiar unravel.

Nest in the remnants of the un-troubling, as solid crutches melt away. Four walls keeping out wind and wolves. No need for falling off cliffs. One. Two. One. Two. Steady.

Focus only on this.
Sacred space.
What matters.
