In my role as the meditation editor I like to include poetry that will be easy to remember to get a deeper point across, usually at the foot of a prose article, serving as a summary.

One of my favorite lines is the beginning of my poem, Aligned, in what I call a galopping rhythm in 15 syllables:

Each of us a conscious soul is master of our mind - -

Oh...i am not at all offended Susan...I just wanted to let you know that i sincerely thought the line was very well-thought of and written, only i do not agree with the sentiment expressed. But just because i do not agree with what the line says does not mean i do not like the way it has been constructed. it was a beautiful line and kudos to you for writing so well. although i like poetry and admire it, i cannot really write poetry. So i truly admire people who are capable of so effectively and beautifully using language.
