Be Still

Be still

and count the echoes of the night

listen to the darkness

entertain tranquility

 Be still

for a moment in the afternoon

watch the distance from the corner of your eye

tune out the constant drone

Be still

in the morning

see the sun rise over a thousand hills

    to envelope a weary world

listen to the earth

dare to do

 Be still

in those few moments

of “glad grace”

grab and hold existence

 In this stillness….

the heart beats

the world spins

lives are renewed and broken

dreams are acquired

and life continues on….
