Finally quiet chatter inside

Stillness at long where you can hide

Dancing brain rests alights on a perch

Viewing the landscape abounding on earth


Journey’s been thrilling with ups and downs

Hearty laughter sometimes sad frowns

Frantic activity meant to distract

While keeping anguish residing intact


One day you wake quiet within

Is this inner space bedrock or merely whim

That knowledge comes after a time

As it plays over in your circular mind


That doesn’t matter it’s up to you

Quiet’s the seed inside your great brew

Give that quiet crystal nurture galore

Feed it with care it does not want more


The payoff a healthy deep glow within

Down in each cell where fire begins

The spiral flame aglow even keel

Fire sustaining all that is real


When you find time to get quiet can you sense healing underneath all the chatter?

Do you know you can choose to access that part of self more often?

What’s in the way you can control?
