Visual Poetry #27 (I Just Happen to Know)

November 30, 2012 011

…amidst the chaos and confusion…the haste and the noise…the pain and the suffering…there is…that silence…that calm…that stability…that steadiness…that stillness…that consistency…that never wavers…that is ever present…yes, there is that

Still point

…and i broke down with gladness in my heart because in that still point there is…that kindness…that tenderness…that grace and mercy…that compassion…and that unconditional love

…and i just happen to know…
