Meditation Meltdown

written by: Genie Nakano



melting down
the yellow chakra
I care
less and less
for what’s out there

just want to
touch those states of bliss
let them drip
through my fingers
then move on to…

  right now
in and out
on the moment

drop the jaw
lift the chin

   catch me
as I
circle the sun
free falls
