i needed a course of healing
some spiritual tonic to deal with the pain of not knowing
a little salve to cool the burning “whens and hows”.
so i went to the Robin sitting on her nest
i watched and waited as she just sat.
in the silence and stillness she showed me that
patience is in order
impatience is in disorder.
by the settling down to build a nest
in which to rest
you will find as you wait and see
if you forget to wait, you won’t see
but if you wait, you’ll always BE.
