Meditation in Nineteen Words


The fire can't burn
troubling thoughts
to ashes.

But focusing on the flames
can relieve the burden
of thinking.

    There is a world of truth to what you share. There is something peaceful about sitting and starring into the flames of a fire, be it a campfire or fireplace, which I have always loved and found relaxing. A great and ingenious use of 19 words.
