Something Beautiful..

A shaft of light;
the flash
of belief..

forgiving insight;
a falling
leaf..

benevolent toil;
the butterfly's 
wing..

a merciful smile;
all fragile
things.

Peace

These beautiful words by T.S. Eliot always speak directly to my soul, and bring me peace when I’m feeling unsure of my path… or falling into despair. ๐Ÿ’™

I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

T.S. Eliot

On the edge..
wedged between
hope and fear
with a clear
view
of
love..

will you
fly

and rise
above.
