Growing Still

May you grow still enough to hear
the small noises earth makes
in preparing for the long sleep of winter,
so that you yourself may grow calm and grounded
deep within.

The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.

Sit Here…

autumn

 

The leaves are turning,
one by one carried away in the crisp wind […]
Away, away, says the blue and gold day,
and no one hears it but the wind…
Sit here —…
This is heaven.
Sit. Stay.

We belong to this world.
