Shimmering, rippling pond surface

mirror of reflections

encircling trees on edge.


An unexpected breeze gently spreads

a yellow-green mist of pollen

across the water’s surface.


“Remain present here,”

says a voice inside.


Feeling at one, at peace,

Letting go of stresses and worries

Dragged down here

to pond’s edge.


Feeling sense of renewal,

Seeing new hope.
