Stillness & Spirit

One thing that can often go missing

Is long walks for no reason other than walking

Is water, is ice

Is trees creaking from the weight of the wind

Is crystals, is candles, is incense

quietly singing

lighting a room

filling the air with spice



One thing that can often go missing

Is a sense of wonder

Is reflection

Is scribbling out the reasons why

and what

and where



One thing that can often go missing

One thing I do neglect

Is spirit

And when I reconnect

with this part of life

I can feel its long absence

laid out behind me

I can feel a space I

didn't know was empty

become whole



I live in a secular, to-do oriented world

and am reminded with each time I

get in touch with this

that it does not take more time away

but adds a whole other dimension

to the calendars

to the lists

to my ticking watch

a stillness
