Jennifer Boire | Montreal, PQ | LCP member since 1998

Morning meditation, Sooke, B.C.

Petunias swing on a wire hanger,
fog clouds the sun.
You are close by, no doubt,
a hair’s width.

Hush now, let go of word-chatter.

Clouds gather & leave
(breath, coming & going).

Hummingbird hovers
in the flute of petunia’s scent.

Practice flying.

All your life you need
to know this
point of exit,
