Ode to Nothing (II)

provides a spark
quite like Nothing

The nimbus within
that glows in repose

Close your eyes to

There it hovers
just beyond

This is part of a series of poems each of which I've composed while meditating.  By necessity they are short, since my memory is shoddy and I simply can't retain more than a stanza or two at most.  It also seems out of keeping with the spirit of meditation to get bogged down in wordiness.

You can read an earlier meditation poem of the same name here, and you can read the first meditation poem in the series here.
