My Journey to God

A Lesson I Learned from Leaves

I love to see
the utter stillness of leaves;
A still life
on any canvas
I’ve ever seen.

I love to hear
the slow exhale of a breeze;
its crescendo sound
rustling, tussling,
my still life about.

This rhythm repeats

Capturing the need for stillness
and motion,
Mirroring the need for being
and doing,
Desiring one thing—
a balanced life.
