Holding Peace

curtainHolding onto trust
In a broken fractured world
Can take so much strength

Strength is hard to find
In the darkest days and hours
Stillness guides the way

Take seat from the core
Turn deeply inward to see
The eternal light

Ever present glow
Home to trust, strength and knowing
Waiting to be found

Shed away layers
Let them burn up in the fire
Revealing your truth

Open the heart and
Receive the gift of being
Authentically you

Trust comes naturally
When you live from your wisdom
Then you can find peace

* A note about this poem: Haiku found me in a big way this summer and held me together and things around me felt like they were falling apart. Here, I created a longer poem made from haiku stanzas.
