finding peace

“The self-controlled soul, who moves amongst sense objects, free from either attachment or repulsion, he wins eternal Peace.”
– Bhagavad Gita

“If you try to deal with the external environment and all the negativity from others, it’s impossible to find peace.”
– Dalai Lama


– Things Within

that small space
between pages turn
another time then
her small hands held
pieces of green
delicate dancers
distant birds call
as dandelions smile
walking the mesa’s edge
where the Rio runs
early evening speaks
graces the edges
and softly descends
