The quiet

Sometimes lately

The healing quiet is all I seek

The deepest place

To find peace

Beyond a world full of so much turmoil

Sometimes my heart aches

As it witnesses

The suffering of human kind

As I feel the emptiness that comes

From running helter skelter

With no deeper purpose

It is then I most wish to be alone

It is then that I most long

For the peace of nature

The calming embrace of quiet

The healing antidote of silence

And most of all

When difficult words

Are spoken

And my body tires of it all

After I take my space

I realise that

As the intensity fades

I will wonder why I made

Such a fuss

Of what ultimately

Could only be healed

Or retrieved

Or revealed

From deep within
