Into the Sadness



A sad moment passes like a ripple in a pool.
Many other moments pass
mimicking the pain of the first.

Past it all is a calmness that waits
For the next sad moment.

Dive into your pool . . .
Deep within you will find a calmness
That cannot be distrurbed by any calamity.

This is where you will find me . . .
Patiently waiting for you.
