“Chaos Meditation” by Antoinette Voûte Roeder

How do I sit

on this floating island

and make it into

a steady anchor

in a pandemic sea,

holding my mantra

“I lack nothing”

while the west coast seizes

up in flames and a typhoon nibbles

at the edge of Japan.

While the world


-we knew it was coming-

I try to hold steady

to a solid centre

a deep space within

that bears witness,

embraces it all

and is not vanquished

by the storm.
