Eternal Calm

Silencing the mind

hearing the natural sound

Peace in the stillness

loud chatter all around

A cicada sounds its tymbals

The bird has its say

in their place of the light

illuminating new day

Why should I worry

about the stressors ahead

It changes nothing

I remember what He said…

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life…”

He goes on to say

“…what you will eat or what you will drink…”

He knew the way

The Lord feeds the birds of the air

are we not of more value than they?

We let those worries of the world

bring strife to our day

God can heal the mind

if we allow Him to lead

Our fear interrupts His grace

harboring will to proceed

Let’s remain peaceful

as we were in the morn

May we hear the voice of reason

as His blessings adorn

When the silence is heard

as light brings new day

may we know we are valued

by seeing His way

Our ways are not better

our worry is waste

We miss out on the silence

when we toil in our haste
