“Namaste,” Prosery

**dVERSE Announcement**
REMINDER! Two chances to join OLN LIVE this month!
Thursday, March 16, from 3 to 4 PM EST
AND Saturday, March 18, from 10 to 11 AM EST.
You may still link one poem as usual for OLN (Open Link Night) even if you do not attend a live session.

I’ve been attending the Saturday sessions and have really enjoyed the poetry and getting to connect with everyone in person! Check it out!


I descend into my liminal place, where stardust sparkles and rainbow colors dance behind my closed lids. Adrift in the darkness of the void, I relax and breathe in the nothingness.

“In space in time I sit thousands of feet above the sea.” The salty breeze touches my skin. Sunlight flows in silky strands caressing my body with an airy touch. My senses come alive, and I feel the waves rise and fall, matching my breath flowing in and out—my anchor to the sandy shore below.

Time ceases to exist. There is no beginning and no end. Peace flickers like sunlight reflecting on the water.

“Ma, I’m hungry. What’s for lunch?”

There it is! I’m jerked back into my other reality, my meditation finished for the day.

“Namaste,” I whisper.


Merril’s over at dVerse today hosting Prosery: Meditation. I took the title literally! She asks us to “write a piece of flash fiction or other prose up of up to or exactly 144 words, including the given line from the poem:

“In space in time I sit thousands of feet above the sea.”

From May Sarton, “Meditation in Sunlight
