Always There

From A Quiet Prayer, Unsorted October 1, 2019

Even when it seemed like

any sense of inner peace

had been lost,

it was there.

It took only the intention

of entering a state of prayer

to refocus on the present moment

and find the center of my heart —

where I could hear the quiet prayer

that was always there.

The Quiet Space Within

Tenderness January 29, 2019

Writing became a meditation,

an easily accessible way

to connect with a truer sense

of self —

in any moment.

My notes became precious tickets

back to parts of self

and back into the world.

Even after I reached a point

where I could safely let go,

translating lived experience

into words continued to be

a ticket into the quiet space within

I wouldn’t have traded

for an easier path.

Softening

From A Quiet Prayer, Softening, What's Right Here August 2, 2017

There was a

softening

of the story

on the surface,

a gentle resetting.

The default emotion

become one of

peace,

the very thing

my heart had

longed for

and called me to.

There was a more

natural connection

with all of life,

a gentle unfolding

of the quiet prayer

within my heart.

Silent pauses became

welcome parts

of the relaxation into

a gentler way

of being.

Forever Connected

Quieting June 7, 2017

There was

comfort in knowing

I was deeply connected

with my heart.

Things that once

caused me to

feel lost

now reinforced

the feeling of

inner connectedness.

Life around me

began to reflect

a deeper kind

of peace.

But it was

the feeling of being

forever connected

within

that gently carried me

as I continued on.

From Within

Quieting May 15, 2017

From the outside,

the changes

seemed subtle

at first.

But from within,

it was clear

there was

something different

here —

a steady kind

of deepening,

a whisper of peace

where there had been

none,

a contentment

independent of

outer circumstances

and past struggles,

but always connected —

a life unfolding

sweetly

out of the quiet prayer

within my heart.

And there was nothing

subtle about that.
