Plum Season


I was sitting in the backyard meditating, and my mind wandered over to the plum tree. This tree grows tall enough to hang out with me on the second floor just outside my window. Over the last few days, the red fruit has ripened, and I couldn't help but imagine biting into a juicy, red summer plum.

But I was in the middle of meditating.

So I gently brought myself back to the present moment, focused on my breathing, and in the moment I got very, very still, I felt a breeze...

And heard a *thud*.

A juicy red plum had fallen off the tree.

When my meditation was over, I walked over to the tree, and found my beautiful red plum waiting for me.
