Minute Meditations

Take Time to See Clearly

In this world darkened by despair and deep division,
we fumble dimly,
to see past self-interest, fears, and endless feuding.

But even looking down we can see beyond,
like the pilgrim seeking clarity
who found a limpid pool,
and bending down
glimpsed the Milky Way
mirrored in the deep.

Then gazing heavenward,
gaped and gasped
at the cosmic show above,
while awe-filled silence taught:
the stiller you become,
the clearer will your reflection be.
