Peace in the Valley
Peace, it is our deepest longing
In all the search, the mighty mountaintops
And the deepest valley’s
the sensation of Peace is
the source of the exploration.
As we age, if we are lucky we will experience
little vignettes of this beautiful
cleansing and healing
One must brings one’s full attention to the eclipse,
Hold on tight and seek wildly
To re-experience, recreate
and demand the sensation to arrive again.
It is a no pulling back endeavor,
going toward peace.
It is a paradox that in the pilgrimage
we will surely experience much disruption, turmoil and
Surely making one think the walk toward Peace
Is a fool’s journey, it is possible it is,
If one does not hold the sensation in the
full awareness of the Being and wanders aimlessly without focus.
The marker of truth that points the Way is the vignettes become, little by little,
Magnificent transcendent experiences
Assuring the Pilgrim of the walk.
