Shrouded in silence
he watches from slivers of space
often unseen,
bathed in the light
a thousand thoughts he seeks
to quiet the mind
and observe unhindered
peace in solitude.
Textures of life blanket
smooth and rough
the days bringing new views.
Words spoken in darkness,
candles light the path
as wisdom is gleaned,
understanding of being absolute
he watches

My apologies for not being around much. The new job is going very well and I am finding a contentment with each day that passes. I hope to get some more catch up in tomorrow and thank you for sticking around. Peace and blessings, Kim

  1. This is so beautiful – seeking a thousand thoughts to quiet the mind and unhindered peace in solitude – how well you describe the state of flux as we seek equilibrium. Wish you continued ease and joy with your new job.

  2. Had a stormy day Monday but not as bad here as north (Seattle up to Bellingham) where we lived until a year ago. They had trees down, at least one person died, etc. Pretty bad. Thanks for asking about it Kim. We’re fine here. ๐Ÿ’•

  5. Ha, yes Mags of course๐Ÿ˜Š but in his case he peers at us outside from around the corner where we sit each night holding conversations for hours, discussing solutions to any issues that may arise, etc….and thus peace is found there too….a bit of an inside element poem fitting the hubs and my evenings by candlelight. And there’s always peace when we decide what’s for supper๐Ÿ˜ƒ
