For the Quaking Soul

594 - Copy

Why fly into the storm, tempting fate?

I do all I can to avoid it–to find the peaceful place, the safe place.

But as the clouds foment and winds increase,

you ride the thermals as though it were a carnival ride.

Up, up, and around,


calling all your friends,

thrill-seeking as the blustering storm swirls its danger.

And I wonder.

Would I find peace in the storm if I could ride the thermals?

Is there a sheltering place unseen to the quaking,

right there in the middle of the tumult?

Hmm.  I’m hearing the Small Voice:

I ride the thermals;

you need only hang on.
