Stay

img_0524Stay inside the house, we are told.

Stay 6 feet away from others to play safe.

This — a time to be together – you with yourself

Me with myself and stillness.

To court silence and gaze within, smiling

Without judgment or thought weaving.

Think of this time as a blessed retreat

A break from the mind’s relentless narratives

A time to dive into an ocean of a recluse’s peace.

Aren’t the wild spinning tales of the mind

Actually different from what actually is?

We drop them like stained clothes

Reaching for the soothing solace and comfort

Of this moment’s hugging arms of stillness.
