Her Gateway

Photo: CA Hawthorne
Peace.
In times of crisis,
peace.
It was what she knew to do,
but when thoughts scattered
it was easy to forget,
and so she had a plan,
a plan that began
with meditation.

Meditation,
her gateway to calm,
to clear thinking.
Following her breathing
served her troubled mind
better than chasing chaos
to the bad place.
Meditation opened the door
to all she needed.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
