Mindful drawing

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

I find a yellow note and a pen
and I draw.
Slowly, deliberately, mindfully
I draw.
Standing Strong
Pen on yellow note

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.
Standing still
standing strong.
