Walking Meditation II

Tonight I walked
as if I could outrun myself
wanting to shake off
this feeling of jangliness
with speed
leaving it behind.

In sitting meditation
I was restless
itching to get moving.
In walking
the vigour rattled my bones
shook out
the feeling of dissatisfaction.

I found myself again
in autumn croci
flopping out of their pot
too heavy for spindly stems
a perfect shade of lilac.

They called my name
I could not ignore.
Their outrageous beauty
caught me
brought me
back to myself
dispelled all restlessness
taught me.
