#1 When in the Woods - Monchielle Stanza
When in the Woods

Settling into stillness,
spine straight, shoulders relaxed,
lines from a Robert Frost
poem glide through my thoughts,
images never lost.

Settling into stillness,
I open to the sounds
of a grey squirrel up high
gathering for winter
and never asking why.

Settling into stillness,
a single beetle crawls
across a lacy fern,
graceful feathered leaves fan
to usher my return.

Settling into stillness,
the minutes drop away
Pain and joy become one,
one moment, one lifetime,
one with the silent sun.
