 Watched Thought


Sitting in meditation with my dog Quest.
Settling my mind, or at least doing my best.
Thoughts march through without my request.
Meditation swims on wild waves creating a test.

The restlessness of my thoughts within my mind
Never ceases to amaze me how they are intertwined.
Climbing up on the watchtower, here I'm not blind.
Seeing the thoughts, allowing them to be refined.

Alertness is demanded so I will never be caught,
Simply sitting with attention, here I'm taught.
This investment in peace can never be bought.
Now comes understanding of the watched thought.
