You and I

IMG_1652

 

I’m a roaring waterfall
You are a serene lake
I’m fire and fury
You are cool stream flowing
I talk before I think
You think so long, before you talk
That I become impatient
I am the talkative one
You are the best listener
I’m spontaneous
You like routine

You’re a night owl
And I’m an early bird
You’re super organized
I try my best
You make me laugh
I love laughter
You’re the reason I came out
Of my shell
You are tactful
I speak my mind
You are diplomatic
I am not!
You are the rock
And I lay against you
You are sunshine
And I bathe in you

Stillness

Stillness
Like the serene surface of a lake at Dawn

Stillness
Where words come from

Stillness
Where I seek refuge each time

Stillness
Where movement originates

Stillness
Where excitement comes to rest

Stillness
Where great ideas emerge

In my busy days
I seek the stillness of solitude

Daily life with all its demands and
Needs come to a stop

I go deep within myself
I connect to what’s out there.

Stillness feeds the soul
Stillness attracts thoughts
Stillness is essential
