Liner Notes: 

Was busy during the skirmish time and decided to work on this a bit later. Chose to start with the chorus and ended on a bridge as a bit of an experiment.
The title doesn't appear in it but I thought it fit. The title idea comes from a Chinese take out dish of mixed vegetables which of course has nothing to do with what I wrote but it felt suited to what I wrote if you look at in an enlightened or spiritual sense.

Skirmish theme = Ritual

Thanks @wacha for hosting and for the theme. Sorry I'm late.

Lyrics: 

Buddha's Delight

I burn some incense
And say a prayer
On my knees
In the open air
Clear my mind
Breathe in deep
Exhaling thoughts
I try to keep

Every day
Without any doubt
I find myself
On a spiritual route
Faithful to traditions
Many don't know
Cleansing myself
Is where I boldly go

I burn some incense
And say a prayer
On my knees
In the open air
Clear my mind
Breathe in deep
Exhaling thoughts
I try to keep

This force is strong
Inside of me
And the connection is a cycle
That sets me free

Nice spiritual reflections, especially with your busy schedule right now. Like the Breathe in deep and Exhale thoughts. I taught Yoga for 20 some years and yes the final relaxation, meditation was my favorite part. Nice write.

Great writing. I love the imagery. Do you have music to go with it?

I couldn't help but read this in the meter of .........now I lay me down to sleep, pray the lord......... and the last part in a yoda voice Biggrin

Really great write! It could be done any way. Is even just a really great meditation mantra! Could be a fun one done with pretty heavy music as well ala the Metallica song I have no idea the title of, but the hush little baby don't say a word nevermind that noisy bird one.

Yup very meditative. Spent a lot of time in Buddhist temples and with Buddhists, captures it all well.
