Poem: Be Still

Do not do
or pretend to be
just be.

Be still.
calm those
anxious, unruly
whirling thoughts
into stillness.

Be still and know
as the flower knows the sun's rays
as the mouth knows bread
as the heart knows love
open yourselves to knowing.

Be still and know that I am
here and now
around you and within you
behind you and before
where you are
I am.

Be still and know that I am God
your Father and Mother
your Companion and Healer
your Life and your all.

Be still.
Be still and know.
Be still and know that I am.
Be still and know that I am God.

Readings: I Kings 19:11-13


  1. Good thoughts to contemplate, especially after a hurricane.

  2. Thank you, Donna. Since Irene means peace, I thought this might fit.

  3. I so needed to read this --- today, right now. Thank you for posting it.

  4. Good. I'm glad, MCH. May you enjoy the stillness within the silence.
