5 Things You See
For my practice of mindfulness I completed the exercise of describing five things I observed when I went outside today.
The shimmering surface of a pool of water. The clear blue hue. Stained surfaces beneath the water, bleached, rough, and uneven.
Gray Oak leaves blowing in the wind. Bouncing off the ground. Waving along a wooden fence.
An empty hammock rocking slowly back and forth. Dozens of pine needles trapped in the white cloth webbing , dotted with dried leaves.
A black oil lamp hanging from a pole. Rust spots below an empty wick slot, on one side of the base a capless reservoir. Soiled surfaces along the frame and a dusty glass enclosure.
Six silver flutes strung with black string hanging from a stone stamped with “Welcome” in a bed of flowers. Alongside, two faded tear drop clappers twisted into a line of miniature Christmas lights.
Do you practice writing meditations? Does it help you with mindfulness? Does it benefit your writing?
