Quiet

Clear crystal silence no chatter or cracks

Stillness serenity stopped in your tracks

Awakened to peace after fight upon fight

Wondering could you last one more night

 

A calm settles in quieting fear

Anxiety suddenly has disappeared

Longing for solace that rests agitation

At last you have landed alone with elation

 

What put you through it what sent you there

When you've been through it year after year

What if you learn stop wasting energy

What if you embrace letting go being free

 

Fear is what does it taking your space

Filling mind body with concerns of disgrace

What can we say about this old churning

It's here to teach us about our own burning

 

The hope is our deepest wisdom prevails

And we say “no” to ongoing travails

Learning to trust step on the next rung

Trusting that faith will provide a warm hug

 

What do you know about quiet?

What have you learned from your place of quiet?

Do you have a way of getting to your place of quiet?

What is it?

Is it always available?

What do you do when you can’t access it?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers. My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all. My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
