Zen Meditation: Trinet (Letters from the Soul #26)

Eyes closed
Agonized heart
Head feels heavy; ache in body
I sit in the lotus position
Pay attention,
Breathe in 
Breathe out.

Breathe in 
Breathe out
The breathing matters and nothing else
I am conscious and full of life;
Completely blessed,
Divine love
Protecting me.

Anxiety slowly
Ebbs down;
Enveloped in a bubble of tranquility,
All my thoughts jump around it
I smile
I am
Fully free.

Note: This is a Trinet poem. It is an invented poetry form which has the following specifications:
Line 1: 2 words
Line 2: 2 words
Line 3: 6 words
Line 4: 6 words
Line 5: 2 words
Line 6: 2 words
Line 7: 2 words
Repeat this pattern 2 more times. When centered correctly, it looks like 3 crosses.

  5. I'm extremely impressed with your writing skills as smartly as
    with the format on your blog. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the nice high quality writing,
