For years, I have come here
and found my peace.
Is it the calm water of the lake
that can almost touch the stillness
buried deep inside me?
Or is it the tall trees
that insist that I don’t settle for low
but find my own way to grow?
No wait, it could be this howling wind
warning me out loud
that time will not stop for me!
But on other days, I am sure,
it’s the sun playing hide-and-seek,
nudging me to explore many rhythms of my own life.
Whatever it is, what I know for sure is this –
that I will come here for years
and this water, these trees, this wind and this sun,
will all conspire together
to make sure that I find my peace.
