Be Still

image from google


"The quieter you become,
the more you can hear."
Ram Dass

Grow still
and listen
from the center 
of your being.

What do you hear?

Rain gently blessing the earth,
birdsong,
      your own breath......
the sound of peace.

Bathe your spirit
in it.
Wrap it around you
like a cloak.

Wear it all day.

  1. Beautiful, Sherry.
    Haven't thought of Ram Dass recently. Good quote.

    PS, maybe you meant "breath" or "breathing" rather than "breathe"?
