Bedtime Poetry: Busy as this day may be . . .


Busy as this day may be, there is a still-point within it.

As time runs by like a river racing to the sea,

the Spirit creates quiet pools, small islands,

spaces to break the single-minded movement.

Find one of these today

before you white water over rocks.

Even a small silence can calm your soul.

Sit in peace.

Close your eyes.


See how the water wears sunlight like diamonds,

shadows like a shawl.
