Mindful Dishwashing

only melodic harp sounds
through iphone earbuds, this
mixed with running water
and soap, my evening
meditation, where grease and

life dissolve in smooth
towel strokes, most nights
i can feel heart
breathing inside, as fingers
cradle cups, plates, pans

i imagine each one
a delicate life, serving
the world, this humble
sink servant, these nothing
moments of pure peace
