Notes On A Bench

A day like any other,
Miracles sing in the gifts of presence.
Billowing grass stroked by wind’s fingers.
Clouds scuttling across sky’s flighty canvas.
Birdsong springing in a melodious flow.
A day in which to observe
That to feel is better than to know.
The heart is a sponge
Soaked in summer’s glow,
Hungry for love.

Be still, be still –
Beauty drowns
Sorrows that kill.

Be still, be still –
Birdsong soothes
The daily drill.

Be still, be still –
Mystery sings
On every hill.

Be still, be still –
Happiness fills
The ardent will.

Be still, be still –
Love is the wine
Lovers distil.
