Day 10, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - The Quiet

Day 10, June 2016, 30-day #‎bornwithwings‬ writing challenge. Inspired by this excerpt of a poem by Rumi: "You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."


The quiet.

I need it sometimes.

We all do.

There is so much noise in our lives.

We get used to it this low rattle and hum that has our synapses constantly firing, reacting.

So we are in constant motion/expending energy.

No wonder people are tired.

I find quiet in hotel rooms sometimes.

Sometimes on the beach.

I try to mediate for 20-30 minutes every day,

Sometimes I find it there sometimes I don't.

Our house is quiet, we live in the country.

The oak tree is a vessel of calm for me.

Can you ever calm your mind, your day enough to

Hear what is truly inside you?

Listen.
