A Buddhist Retreat In My Mind

Well I suppose it is interchangeable

how one might begin their day.

We are all unique

and yet so clearly the same

in our common ways,

those often ignored

sometimes referred mundane.

Begin a day with sunlight

feel it radiate through the blinds,

those that we all have

all similar in a way.

I once used to walk

a familiar path

outside the realm of my neightborhood

seemed this special hideaway

a path inside the forest

came upon the crest of a hill.

I would sit myself there

for hours at a time,

I suppose I thought it some

buddhist retreat in my mind.

In those moments I would find that peace,

that serenity for which we feel so blind.
