Come sit with me.
I have plumped up a cushion for you.
There’s a box beside the door –
you can leave your mind there
Rest in this silent place
allowing succulent stillness
to fill your tired bones.
Stay until you hear
the whisper of your heart’s wisdom:
“This unfathomable peace – it is your own
Stay. Please stay!
And when you go
you will know a secret
that can never again be un-known.
Beloved, you are the love of your life.
