settle in

Ask the world to reveal its quietude —
not the silence of machines when they are still,
but the true quiet by which birdsongs,
trees, bellworts, snails, clouds, storms
become what they are, and are nothing else.
Wendell Berry

in the center of the flood
grasping, gasping
may I find the still point
peace falling, as the dove 
Holy Spirit, settles in
for an extended stay

Always a blessing to "hear" from you and see from you. I smiled significantly when I saw this. Thanks. Hope you are doing well...VERY well in that area! I sure miss being in Uganda. Bless you two.
