Deep Peace

 

Deep peace of the running wave to you.

Deep peace of the flowing air to you.

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.

Deep peace of the shining stars to you.

 

– based on writings of poet William Sharp

 

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

A Soft Sea

“A soft sea washed around the house,

A sea of summer air . . .”

– Emily Dickinson –

 

Breathe deeply of this soft sea. Breathe out heaviness, breathe in buoyancy.

Nourish peace, cultivate loving kindness, and carry the calm.
