peace moment

there are times the song of life
seems to be in a minor key
with a kind of veil over our soul
diffusing sadness over all praise
courage and confidence are needed
to go on singing

reaching the end of the song
it is more apparent
the end refers back to the beginning
and rounds off the story

Good Friday was a broken chord

so often we confuse not having peace
with not being aware
of the peace we have

when storm-tossed
we no longer perceive anything but the storm
because that occupies the most conscious part of ourselves

we have not lost our peace
simply our awareness of it

is God's Presence

provided we have not offended him gravely
He is there
