Cliff's (just sitting) Meditation

Sitting calmly with chaotic thinking
aware of breathing, sensations, and emptiness
flexible open heart, flapping mind wondering
What is, and of that what am I?

Emptiness pervades sensations, boundless,
painful muscle/bone knots obscure flowing energy.
Wishless, notionless clear-mind background
permeates "me", cushions, and space.

Accepting and forgiving being,
meeting what is real and vital,
aware, alert, singular, distorted and distracted.
Is "I" an idea, a sense of "my" vs other?

Dropping off thinking and meaning
Simply being boundless
Appreciating heritage and embodiment
Neither disavowing nor affirming.
