Mindful drawing

Standing Strong.
Pen on yellow note.

Watching the frozen river inlet
I see a tree right in front of me
standing so still
so steady
its roots firmly planted in the ground.

I find a yellow note and a cheap pen
and I draw.
Slowly, deliberately, mindfully.
I draw.

Seeing the tree,
really seeing the tree,
getting to know it through my pen,
understanding how it is built.

Becoming the tree.
Feeling tension dissipate
down my roots.
The mind calms down and focuses.

Being the tree.
Sitting still,
standing strong.

Drawing the tree.
