Remedy For Change

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.
