Finally quiet no chatter inside
Stillness at last in which to reside
Dancing brain alights on a perch
Seeing landscapes abound on earth

Journey’s thrilling ups downs
Hearty laughter long sad frowns
Frantic activity meant to distract
While anguish resides inside intact

One day wake quiet within
Hit bedrock or just a whim
Knowledge comes after a time
Playing over in circular mind

It does matter it is up to you
Quiet seed inside your brew
Give that quiet nurture galore
Feed with care to give you more

Payoff a healthy glow within
In each cell where fire begins
The spiral flame glows even keel
Sustaining all in you that is real

When you get quiet can you sense bedrock under the chatter?

How do you access that more often?
