Poem written and read by me as part of Calm in Chaos meditation series.
Lying among daffodils
Basking in the golden sun
Feeling its warmth spreading over
Clearing us for sure
Shining into the cavities of the mind
Releasing thoughts from a bind
Freeing the heart
Of envy and rut
Undoing the knots of self-judgement
Lodged in the pits of disappointment
Soothing the nerves
In the tempest of anxiety.
The sun, our steward
Does not desire reward
Clearing us with kindness
Not demanding to be finest
Departing when it’s time for rest.
Take cue from the sun
Who wants to go, let them go
Who wants to stay, welcome them
Who leaves footprints, let them be.
For to know courage
Is to have let go off someone’s hand
To know connection
Is to have held someone’s hand.
To know kindness
Is to be like the sun
That knows its rhythm
Letting go when time is up
Yet always there, giving, never holding back.
