What does this “simple” image say to me?

Many things.  Probably more than I know.

One thing it clearly says is: “listen”.

listening to silence: the book


meditating on the cover

LS book cover - October 10, 2014pm

Just what we’d expect to see on the cover of a poetry book on meditation…

Yet, it’s no mere cliche: in meditation we go beneath the surface, past the camouflage (the maya) of our mundane world…

And as we open to the depths, we open the flower.
