When Peace Comes



When peace comes

It can be a surprise

For in the midst of turmoil

Its calm assuredness

Rests unwavering.


When peace comes

It touches us inside-

Body, mind and spirit- all at once;

Disregarding all worry, pain and mystery.


Long after its affect has passed

It lingers, shaping

An unclimbed mountain of faith,

A hope filled memory,

A faded, guiding light.

We yearn for peace to return.


When peace comes

And goes

Eluding our grasp

Leaving behind its lessons

We are astonished to learn-

Peace resides within us

And it waits for us

To accept its presence.
