together moment

tender moments were spent
over the past 2 days
with a gathering of shepherds
who deliberately chose to ignore
the loud screaming of their agendas
in this season of Christmas busyness
and come away
to be still
to be silent
to listen

at one point I was asked
what I had learned
in this season of my life

and I shared
about the lion
and about the lamb

both of which reside within me

the lion
my adult self
my decision making self

the lamb
my still fearful
needing affection and support self

how I was discovering peace
when allowing the lion
and the lamb
to lie down together

and how I know God
and yet am still very ignorant
how I see
and yet I do not see
