oh! how full of love
is the world-
our minds sometimes won’t let it just be
quiet and rested
in that knowledge.
But oh yes! that love-
even in the disquiet of our times
even in the anger and hate
and disloyalty, even
in the sadness and grief-
that that Love is there.
and if you can be very still
for just a moment
you can sense it
and hold it in your trembling hands.
hold it, even tear soaked and weak,
hold it there in
your trembling hands.
“our minds sometimes won’t let it just be”
It’s so hard to quiet the busy mind and just listen…and look…for the good. I’m trying to practice being still–thank you for this beautiful reminder.
Yes, love, kindness, goodness are all still there. We see it in disasters, when people help each other, human to human, no divisions.
