Softly

Softly afternoon light falls

Casting its shadows upon the ground

Lattice branches waft as gentle breeze

Moves the air around

Here in my heart there is warmth

After times of tumult

Anchored in this peace

I find relief

From the busy mind

Always full of seeking things

That never seem

To satisfy the restlessness

Of its truest longing and desire

And yet here I find

A place to breathe

A sense of peace and mystery

Surrounding me

Surrender you are an ocean

My soul just longs to swim within

And just as the wind

Does not argue with the rain

Neither do I need to cause myself further pain

In the pursuit of that

Which in offering escape

Often just end up encouraging

Emptiness
