Poetry ~ Searching

When looking for answers
where do I begin?
I'm either looking up
or I'm looking within.

In the past, when searching,
I've cast my eyes to the sky
but I'm gently reminded
answers are found inside.

In the practice of stillness,
the answers flow.
I've become friends with silence.
As above, so below.

Poetry ~ Stillness Speaks

Today I will take the first step
to slow down and catch my breath. 

And find, as the season’s pass,
a gentler world where my soul can laugh. 

Where I alone create my future
and choose the life I wish to nurture. 

A place where – stillness speaks
when you’re ready to listen.
And laughter echoes in recognition 

of what you thought was surely true
and now you see you never knew.
