Directed Awareness: Attention

Free will or not
Consciousness semi-explained
Onto the surface
Of mind unrestrained

How gather my thoughts
A vector perhaps
I see without eyes
Invisible scraps

Sensory distractions
All five untrust
Whatever did happen
Attention robust

Watch listen feel
Sort of what I mean
But literal these are not
For data to glean

In language mistrust
To carry the letter
No words and silence
I understand better

Meditation to sketch
Images on fire
Heat then recedes
Light's pure desire

Is it now clear
The muck and the suck
Consider me freer
A duck yet a duck
