STILLNESS II

lavender wafts in the air
she peers at her life through closed eyes
inhaling slowly, she welcomes life
exhaling, she whispers goodbye
colors march past through her mind’s eye
royal blue, red and white
she calls out to Him
Mary
Gabriel
Mara
for peace to reign inside
for strength to soldier on
for wishes to come true
for acceptance of what was and what will be
she clears her mind of caustic thoughts
inviting understanding  
forgiveness and surrender to settle in
wishing for the well of contentment to open up
she lets go of the past
inhaling slowly, she sends messages of love
exhaling, she releases self-loathing
she beckons to Him
Mary
Gabriel
Mara
to whisper words or gratitude
basking in the stillness of the moment
