Deepening Gratitude

She sat. Legs crossed. Eyes shut. Focused on her breathing. In. Out. In. Out. Until everything fades away, and stillness is found. Images flicker behind her eyes. To rapid to consciously process, but they are processed and remembered. In. Out. Breathing. Flashing images. Repeated. Washed with love. Deep in gratitude. Slowly returning to the present. Where the stillness will carry her through the day. Where the breath will be focused on. Where her gratitude will be deepened. Where life will flow and unfold in calmness, wonder, and delight. In stillness, deepening gratitude, she lives and breathes each day. Sending love to all along the way.

Love and Comfort

Washed away all the bitterness,
The heartache, and the tears.
Left behind the anger,
The resentment, and the fears.
Releasing all that burdens me,
That does not resonate.
Quieting the mind for once.
There is no room for hate.

Filling all the gaps I find
Love and comfort
Left behind.
