Mirrored, the silence
echoes through my soul – invites
a deep soothing calm.

(It’s open link night at the dVerse pub, hosted by Kim.  Thought I’d drop by with a bit of a calm.  Image from personal collection.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Very soothing, V.J. Just yesterday I read this by Rumi, “We are the mirror, as well as the face in it. We are tasting the taste of eternity this minute.” I thought of this quote when reading your lovely haiku.

      1. We all need calm right now as our environment is so chaotic. Like everyone, especially creative types, achieving complete stillness is a lifelong challenge. I’ve had a lifetime of prayer/meditation and I still pull my hair out trying to rein in my monkey mind.

  2. I used to meditate, but gave up after never achieving the silence, the white calm. My cortex never sleeps; I either dream, daydream or inhabit the Now.
