Peace #writephoto

Calm
Quiet
Time to think
Moments to be
To find what is lost
Buried by impatience
Drowned by the clamour of need
And the apron-strings of duty
Bound to the tides of necessity
And importunities of survival
Hearts cannot hear that still, silent whisper
Reaching out from the core of being
Across the void of illusion
Offering inspiration
Infinite compassion
Yearning to be heard
A gift of love
Offering
Silent
Peace

    “To find what is lost
    Buried by impatience
    Drowned by the clamour of need
    And the apron-strings of duty
    Bound to the tides of necessity
    And importunities of survival”

    You have, through your experience and by your words, named my own. This is what beautiful writing can do. Thank you, Sue.
