Clear crystal silence no chatter or cracks

Stillness serenity stopped in your tracks

Awakened in peace after fight upon fight

Wondering could you last one more night


Calm settles in quieting fear

Anxiety suddenly has disappeared

Longing for solace resting agitation

At last 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 stop wasting energy

What if you embrace letting go being free


Fear is the culprit taking your space

Filling mind body concerns of disgrace

What can we say about this old churning

It’s here to teach about our own burning


The hope deepest wisdom prevails

Saying no to ongoing travails

Learning to trust step on the next rung

Faith will provide a welcoming hug


What is your way of getting to your place of quiet?

Is it always available?

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