have stilled and quieted my soul

today when

i canceled all and was home, mostly

in silence

busying my hands with concrete things

like the baking of bread, the folding of clothes

emotionally fragile, knowing

a glass vessel of tears needed release

into your cup

my head, a rest in your lap

and as i wrote,


taught me, you

gave insight enough

to know a step to take

to know a truth more deeply

to know you are nearby

so, no flurry of anxious prayers,

just some quietness
