Inchworm Meditation

This poem of mine is published in the Fall 2014 issue of WestWard Quarterly Magazine:

Inchworm Meditation

Gazing past trees and bushes –
to see calm water beyond.
Some tiny movement close-by.
Inchworm measures length
of bark, brown and slant.
Ah! One moment,
silly and playful –
the next poised tall
on hind legs.
Perfect stillness.
Image of a stick.
Serene meditation.
Not even the tiniest
flicker of movement now.
Oneness with bark is all
that’s evident in the moment.
This attention can go on and on.
