ON FINDING PEACE IN A CITY

 

On finding peace in a city

 

I know not the impetus, kind thought or cause,

what intricate providence, made me give pause.

The briefest encounter with a hidden knowing,

a hushed vouchsafe as I watched the slowing

of the world from that bench within the park,

accepting sharp gracious gift without remark.

I know not what manner of good I had made,

that warranted knowledge of this secret shade,

where a sacred and reverent stillness reigned

and where doubt and worry gently drained.

    1. A common theme of mine. All my life I’ve struggled to still my mind. The best I ever achieve is a slowing down and control of direction , a focus on our art helps, if I switch to poet mode and start seeing and not just looking I feel peaceful. Thank you
