Stillness Turns

Updated on August 21, 2015
Everything has its season

stillness turns,

finds center

a deeper place than words reach.

They carve out

a physical sense

of time,

a tick tock

as hands cradle

each turn

toward home.

      Hi Audrey, How lovely your poem is. It reminded me of a verse in the Bible that says, "be still and know that I am God."

      Blessings to you.
