Morning Meditation


Quiet damned soul
From which I speak!
Quit talking gibberish
To the stones and trees
And no more questions, please!
And no more answers either
Plunge me into the darkness
Tear out my heart
In a ritual from before I was born
Let the stars implode
Until there is only a lightless sky
And even the darkness is gone
And the day rises from the night
When my meditation is over.
