4-11-11

Calm . . . teeth unclenched,

open heart and open hand—a consenting—

needing all the sighs and soft breathings,

the sinking, deepening resolve that

enters in . . . and

nests in seclusion in my once

tormented  

mind:

Even in eddying chaos that

niggles at my new found peace, there is intentional calm in this single moment of

time.
