A Meditation on the Lake


As the wind drives ripples over the top of the lake

I feel my shoulders relax,

and cold air fills my lungs.

And the ease of letting the day go

surprises me as I meditate now

on my spirit taking off

reaching up,

into the clouds.

I am free and freer still.

Strengthened by the Peace


Memories of quiet moments drift within our depths,

whispering within our spirits,

until we draw a deeper breath,


and strengthened by the peace

we so very much long for.
