Calm

Updated: Jul 19


One day I awoke,

to the sounds of waves splashing,

caressing my sleepy head.

Within a landscape of tranquility,

permeated by the soft ebb and flow of thought,

a destination I adventured across the world for.


An experience I searched through monasteries and ancient literature for.

A feeling I had meditated and prayed into living.

A state I had attempted to think into existence.

A beingness I couldn't stop trying to achieve.


Yet here it was,

in its empty nothingness.


For when desire departed,

the calm arrived.

And I knew the quest was over.
