generous quietude

Generous Quietude20121104-120313.jpg

Carry a little quiet inside you

while the world continues

in rush and rage

fighting and frenzy.

Carry a little quiet inside you

so that the worry and war

trouble and tumult

do not capture you in their grip.

Tarry in the Son-filled meadow of the heart

beside the still waters

where God’s Spirit refreshes and renews.

Carry so much quiet inside you

that you have some extra calm

to share with me.

— Safiyah Fosua
