“Meditation Thoughts” (Sonnet (ABABCDCDEFEFGG)) – by Dan Baker

May all beings be happy, healthy and free.

(except for those racist, Nazi bastards)

No, no, even those Nazis who shot me.

(remember what you said when you got plastered?)

Smile, relax, and focus on the breathing,

OK, focused now, meditation on track,

(thinks of dying friends and enemies, screaming)

You are safe now, you are not under attack.

“Think all phenomena are like a dream.:

The mantra crystalizes like a prism

(We must be practical to succeed)

Cultivate motivation, altruism.

Attachment and aversion slip away,

happiness, discovered, has come to stay.
