When I Look – A Meditation – Jenny Meehan

posted in: Poems 2014 | 0

When I am, 

I am here… Looking carefully.

When I am,

I am here…Looking wondrously.


and within…

Without anxiety.

It is better to wait.  It is better to trust.  It is better to risk living.

Even in the darkness.

It is better to ask.  It is better to feel.  Better this,

than to live in hiding.

Better this,

than before, when I shut life out.


Life has opened. It continues to open. It opens again.  Everlasting flower.

Welcomes; It continues to welcome.

Calls, and continues to call.

Soft, silent petals

Shown in a moment, in

meditation of one still second.

Tiny, but certain.  It’s peace-stalk is green against grey.

Grey fading into past

becomes a memory.

I feel better when moving.

I can fall forward,

I can fall back.

When I am, 

I am here…Looking carefully.

When I am,

I am here….Looking wondrously.


and within,

without anxiety.

A meditation.

Thank you.


Jenny Meehan
