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
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.
