Find Serenity

“I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity… I didn’t feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not–more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving.”  ~Beverly Sills


Find Serenity


Serenity has not one color
One place nor one time
It’s sunrise and sunset
Blue waters of storm or calm…


Cloudy and cloudless
Tina ripples upon a lake
Silence within when tossed about
Breaking waves amid a wake…


Distant as the farthest mountain
Atop the highest peak
Closest as the sweetest kiss
Nearby a rocky creek…


Velvet touch of the crimson rose
Touchless like the thorny vine
Happily ending love story
Tingling goosebumps up the spine…


Find serenity
Within your heart, mind and soul
Easily seen on the outside
It’s the inner beauty to behold

  1. Send some of that serenity this way … we could use some. A lot. We seem serenity challenged around here.
