A Stillness

There is a stillness

That reaches to

The very core of the soul,

Like an anchor

In the storm,

Like a rock

In shifting desert sand,

Like a current

Steering the river.


It reaches deep, deep

Beyond itself

To peace Himself–

The Christ–

Who upon sin’s cross

Found still,

Peace in doing

His Father’s Will.

  1. Beautiful poetry, Yolanda. The metaphors and Christ’s example say it so eloquently. In the oft tumultuous and tempestuous sea of life, lies the cord of peace that only we ourselves can sever.
