In Stillness

I’ve laid down my pack
and loosened the laces
on my hiking boots
I will sit for a while
admire the mountains I’ve
yet to climb
I will inhale the clean air
and listen for the small
stirrings of creatures
nearby
watch for the
aerial performance of
hawks in the blue sky
I will feel the warm breeze
as it passes me, hurrying off
to the valley below
I will stay here a while
in stillness – waiting
until peace joins me
then I will move on

  1. I just asked my husband how I can be so content sitting outside and doing nothing. Is something wrong with me? Am I just being lazy? I’m sitting on our deck, and we live in the woods, so it’s really sitting in nature. I guess I’m waiting for my peace to return. Thanks for this post!
