Finally quiet the chatter subsides
Stillness at long last resides deep inside
The dancing brain rests and alights on a perch
You view the whole landscape abounding on earth
The journey’s been thrilling with ups and downs
Sometimes hearty laughter sometimes sad frowns
The frantic activity’s meant to distract
And to keep anguish residing intact
One day you wake up a quiet within
Is this inner space bedrock or merely a whim
That knowledge will come after a time
As it plays out in your circular mind
That doesn’t matter ‘cause 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 ‘s a healthy deep glow within
Down in each cell where your fire begins
The spiral flame is aglow even keel
That fire sustains all that is real
When you find the time to get quiet can you sense the healing underneath all the chatter?
Do you recognize that you can make a choice to access that part of yourself?
Is there anything preventing you from going there more often?
