Seeker of Magnificent Peace…

…is what you are, they said, with eyes upward, always
searching the sky for answers, connections
as if they were written in the space between clouds
you peel back the pages of unassuming novels
and whisper sentences aloud 
while divinity falls from the pages
you can’t help but hear the silence between spoken word
peering between the eyes of the same, the other
suddenly finding presence in a habitual day
presence that wakes you up like cold water 
you swallow the steady tones of your yoga teacher’s chant 
“open your crown chakra, 
see the barriers fall between you and the divine
you are connected to the wisdom of the universe”
inhale, exhale
never stop seeking

the worst part about forever
is not knowing if i’ll ever be
completely immersed in it

the foundation of belief

doubt lingers
forever in the caverns
of minds,
the corners of outstretched arms,
the tips of tongues,
it rests idly, but never silently
and when it pushes most fiercely
it’s easy to fall prey to its weight
and forget the meaning of all
that surrounds you
it’s doubt that holds a mind captive
and keeps it present,
near the ground
but doubt seeks attention most
when its surroundings
are magnificent, and it’s presence
opens up my eyes
and calls me to push it away
and like a wave of sleep
I will never give in to
it makes me ache to believe.
And I believe,
that much more.

a pasture serene
within which reason abides
turning in at dusk

To cure a recent lack of inspiration, I’ve decided to do a Haiku series for the next seven days on the seven virtues–prudence, justice, temperance, courage, faith, hope, love. Enjoy!

calming voices sing
praises that lift closed eyes
in abiding glee

a star falls gently
lifting ardent hands skyward
to catch fragile light

Where Am I?
