All the Wonders

The Endless Chatter


I am powerless to ignore

The endless chatter of The News.

The pre- and post-disasters,

The Shocking Revelations,

The dire forecasts

And somber analysis.

I seem unable to remember

That what I need, really,

Is just a bit of silence.

A walk outside,

A time of meditation,

A few deep breaths.

What I need, really,

Is the sound of the birds,

The kiss of the sunrise,

The feeling of the cool breeze on my skin.

Help me, God of Peace,

To find moments of you

That break through

The endless chatter.
