The Safety of the Harbor

Mountains and Rivers 325

Our ghosts like to follow us into the harbor

driving us to seek the false sense of rest,

waiting until the next time we turn out to sea.

But still, the peaceful quiet of a snowfall,

or a candle in a window, can help us to release our anchor,

to let go of the worry, and ghosts will not have an ear

to talk to, not have a hold on us, even in a storm.

It is the internal quiet that gives us a harbor,

being guided by the light.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

  1. I could feel the tension leaving as I read you words, Nico. Thank you! I find myself rushing to answer the many comments when I would honestly love just to be on the couch resting. Bless you!!! ❤
