Quietly waiting

How does one find

Peace and quiet

How do you

My experience has been

That it’s an elusive state of being

The more I chase it

The further away it gets

However when I stop chasing

For long enough

There it is

Embracing me

The golden key

Is just allowing it to be

Without thinking

But fully knowing

That it is there

Waiting for me

Peace and quiet

Accessible

At any given moment

Unless I chase it

Then it will flee

It’s secret is in

That it waits for me

To comprehend

Thoughts are it’s enemy

It doesn’t have to be found

But thoughts keep pushing

It around

Until thoughts fill my mind

And then peace and quiet

I cannot find

But when I let thoughts go

What do you know

Peace and quiet

All aglow
