to fly above the stillness

my body
stiff and rigid, was given wings

to move about and extend
to dance and flex with freedom

my mind
was stilled, and ever silent

focused on pinpoint reflection
calmed, like a silent stream

my heart
was left, by the sea

in the days, that followed
a lasting memory, unchained me

my soul
was given freedom, to fly

in the years, that passed
a forgotten wisdom, had found me

to fly above the stillness
to soar into the clear, blue sky
to grasp with mindfulness
to find an inner wisdom
to reflect on the passing moment
to love and feel
to find one’s inner spirit
to search the soul within…

there was a time when life was complex
but, in actuality, life has always been simple

we make mountains when there is actually a peaceful, green valley

to live in peace is to fly above the stillness
to love is to find compassion and kindness in all

to fly above the stillness
is to search deep within your soul

…and find the wisdom you seek.
