Still life

Still life

Silent waves draw me in,
until every inch of me,
is filled with your beauty.

Out of your emptiness,
something new is born,
in the wakening of a bird.

I love to hold you,
in every sense of my being,
I see everything,
in your nothingness.

Silent membranes,
create sound waves,
only the purest soul can hear.

There is nothing,
and yet,
there is everything.

In this still life,
a creation is born,
in the utmost silence.

Rediscovering Peace

Rediscovering peace

The wind comes up,
and the clouds hide the sky,
setting in the rain,
when I pray,
for my heart to find peace,
once again.

Like the elements of nature,
my soul switches emotions,
all set in its time.
Uncontrollable is the rain,
unable to hide the sun,
defenseless against the storm.

The bats hide inside the cave,
waiting for the night to set in,
but the night will not provide comfort.

Like a swan facing the world,
on a small turquoise pond,
I allow the purple wisteria flowers,
to caress my skin,
as a gentle act of kindness.

On the wings of the swan,
I fly endless distances,
searching for Divine peace.
But in that small pond of love,
I find my deepest comfort.

In that one moment,
I find Your rest deep within me,
gushing like a waterfall.

After the long years of fighting.
After the many miles of walking.
After all the endless prayers.
Peacefulness trickles,
like oil across my face.
Until my heart rediscovers peace,
in Your arms.
