Fallen from noise.

   This morning was unusually peaceful as the power was out and I was the first one up to notice.  I guess that there were close to 30,000 people without power this morning and they power company did not say when it would be back on. It was nice just wandering around the house and not hearing the electronic items buzzing, No artificial lights to interlude.

Fallen from noise and clatter.
Noticing everything
And all is at rest.
     Peace and stillness.

Rising above soil and men.
Light slowly breaks
The day breaks forth.
     Sun and clarity.

   What a beautiful day to keep a bit of stillness within.  To hold with grace a small amount of peace that can only be had by communing with nature.  By simply being there with God's creation.  One on one, no interference from technology or obsessing over the dramas of men.

   May you keep the peace a new day brings.  May you find stillness that cannot be fabricated.  May you be in your life and not in your mind.

Peace and grace of being, love and stillness to all.

  1. I grew up in the Sierras, close to nature and I can't wait to get back. In the meantime, I'll enjoy the steamy beauty of Florida. Nothing brings as much peace as the great outdoors. Enjoy the day Wily.

  2. I enjoy the early hours when many are still sleeping. It's a wonderful time to think about the day, what you plan on achieving that day, and about the people you love.

  3. You are right. If we want to be close to God we need to get closer to creation. When we do we see that it is GOOD. I love the peace and stillness that can only be found, for me, in the north woods of Maine. It's wonderful to find a place where the only man made sounds are those of your own footsteps.
    Thanks for this. :)

  4. Beautiful lines to remind us all to treasure each new dawn. I also enjoy *short* power outages.

  5. Misty, you are right. *Short* power outages are nice. ;D

    I appreciate each one of your comments and even more thankful for your visits.

  6. We find Him in the stillness of our hearts... of our day... of our life. Such a precious and blessed moment.
