Daily Prompt: Silence

via Daily Prompt: Silence

RMPbathkisses

Still my head in the clanging of the night, the time when darkness amplifies the messes of a life

hard on ourselves, we shush the racket, we roll, we toss, we justify it

A reason for the clamor banging inside our skull; there are a hundred

the list makers tally one two three

the naysayers find, then deny, the pattern

the lost find crumbs in the replay- the words, the moves, the comebacks missed

Jaws clenched, shoulders shrugged, the toss, the turn, the ujjayi

This life

and where it is taking you, in this one night-

relived, revised, reviled-

Breathe through,

settle a silence in palms open,

and cradle forgiveness beyond admonition,

allow your gentled, paused and playful spirit

to hold abundant grace and mercy for your reflections.

.

She is certainly stilled;  yet crossed leg with foot twitching, gives her silence a war.

    • This write began as a purge of the badness we embolden in the darkness, the long nights of sleepless mind tossing…and then, it needed to take me to a better place; and it did. Mindfulness. Yoga. Positive- affirmations. We find peace if we are at least as kind to ourselves as we are to others…- thanks for reading, again DSS. – Ret
