The moon is waning.
One bright star
Pierces dusky black of midnight sky.
I lay beneath the dome of space
And give my heart permission
To simply breathe
Deep in the embrace of letting go
Things that do not serve me any longer.
To hold secure a space for change
To hug with warmth the fullness of my life
And know that in the sweet release
I will create a space
For newer thoughts to rise.
I ask for purpose and for clarity.
I know that they will come
Flow free in spaces that I clear
When I take time to breathe
And lay in silent muse.
Sometimes the message comes to me
Not in the stillness carved for contemplation.
But in the After.
When time and Presence whispers Now.
And like a Gentle brush of feather
I remember once again
That stillness is not wasted.
For it creates and clears a room for wonder.
