When Winter Thaws

Sparkle-shadows hem you in,

Marshmallow caps where growth has been;

Wait, my soul, be still, and pause,

Spring will bloom when Winter thaws.

Be Still

frostontree.jpg

Rolling stones gather no moss

and waving branches gather no frost;

be still.

Frantic fixing

and constant agitation

will give you motion sickness;

be still.

If you quiet your spirit

and rest your soul,

those elusive molecules of Peace

will find sticking place

and grow,

crystals colluding,

painting you Patient.

So

drop those worries,

cast those cares –

and be still…
