The Evolving Landscape Within

by Terry Young, RDC


Days calm and non-threatening.
Like fields of wheat.
Gentle hills and valleys.
Warm southerly breezes.
Momentary relief.
Night-darkness comes at noontime.
No stars, moon, sun. No light.
Clouds hovering within mind and heart.
Ups, downs, highs, lows.
Mountains, canyons, hills and valleys.
An ever-changing evolving landscape within.
Wait... coming is a
New landscape of color, newness, light,
and Beauty.
Wait. Patience. Hope. Trust.
