MIND MUDRA: A CHAN POEM

MIND MUDRA: A CHAN POEM
Changming Yuan

            True peace can be achieved only through within. – Dan Qi

Legs crossed
Sitting straight
Staying still in chan meditation
Upon a lotus flower
Newly blossoming on my inner pond
I perceive myself transforming
Slowly but steadily
From a monstrous yellow-skinned frog
Into an ever bigger, brighter Buddha
Until my whole being inside out
Bursts into trillions of individual cells
Each being an other self of mine
Like a star beyond the skyline  
Blinking, whispering
As if all chanting
In a universal prayer
For harmony
