Peace Within~Writing Course 201 Day 10

Peace
Peace

Searching in the sand for my peace

Rhythmically etching your fine lines

O how you trace the smooth and crease

Your humble simplicity surely shines

~

Will I find my pleasure in your grains

Meditatively refining my point of view

Your quality of serenity still remains

To face the world refreshed and new

~

My fingers notice your rough texture

Bringing my awareness to the now

In your specks I have found a treasure

Concentrating on my truth I do avow

~

The world can no longer me contain

You have lifted me high above the pain

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
