the feeling when the plane takes off and your stomach drops

I inhale
hold my breath

remember to breathe
let go

will we make it?

the plane takes off
my stomach drops
I am free.

breathe

feel your body
back against the chair
feet on the floor
breathe

anger
courses through my veins

sadness
overcomes my body

breathe.

the power of prayer

I enter the prayer room
breathe out
remember
I am fine

light streaming in the window

I sit
breathe in and out
I look at the lake

and feel held
loved
protected

I pray
and I become
free.

Stillness

DSCF0317

There is a stillness that underpins all the little daily miracles,
and underpins all art.

It underpins all love,
all beauty,
all relaxation.

All hope,
and kindness.

All understanding,
inspiration,
and peace.

It is hidden on the moon and deep within your heart.

And it can be hard to find,
But it is always there,
Right below the surface.

Waiting to be drawn out,
By the ear within the ear,
The eye beneath the eye.

Breathe,
and you can tap in.

Breathe,
feel the stillness,
draw it out.
