Peace

Agitation

Distraction

A persistent

Tap, tap, tap

 “Go…now…and sit”

I listened

Silence enveloped

Muffled

Cushioned

Comforted

Quiet nothing

Whispered in my ear

Wind howling

Rain pelting

Bird feeder spinning

Chaos

Outside

Peace, calm

Inside

No desperate pleas

No battle cries

In the quiet arms of love...

Scribing with my eyes closed

So as not to break the spell

…may there be peace on earth
