At Bat

by Kevin T McEneaney

Some days part of my brain doesn’t function;

it’s hard to figure out the problem.

Meditation often solves the problem;

then renewed, my brain operates quite well—

the knotty quandary evaporates

like a cumulous cloud floating above,

hardly noticed at all amid blue sky….

Consciousness is a complex labyrinth

where sequential turns are not obvious,

yet one somehow manages an exit

to walk in broad fields flowering with thyme,

or a path through rocky, wooded terrain.

The world can be a dizzy, spinning place.

Just concentrate and arrive at first base!
