Stillness - Poetry

Today, something a little different. I've been delving back into the world of poetry and want to share a first effort.


My mind needs a garden.

A place to find stillness of the soul.

A place with both familiar paths
                      and unknown trails leading off into dappled woods.

A bench to rest a weary life.



The lullaby of running water.

A sense that there is something bigger at work.

A letting go and finding clarity of purpose.
                Or maybe finding that I don’t need one - that the only task is to just be
                              and do no harm.



Sudden bursts of beauty, unfurling, nodding in the breeze.

I want a place
in which to bloom.
