…my shelf of peace…

LittlePineyCove

This is my ledge
of quiet,
my shelf of peace,
edged
by its crooked rails
holding back the beyond.
Above,
a hawk sails
high
to challenge clouds
trespassing
my plot of sky.
Below
in the valley
remote and dim,
sounds
come and go,
a requiem
for quiet.
Here on my ledge,
quiet praise:
of birds,
crickets,
breeze –
in different ways;
and so do I –
for these:
my ledge of quiet,
my plot of sky;
for peace.

from Sitting by My Laughing Fire by Ruth Bell Graham (Word Books, 1977)

 

I was able to find this book online after reading this poem.  I believe it is out of print, but it has become one of my treasured items in my small library.

The Graham family has been such a blessing to many all over the world.  I am forever grateful for how they have ministered to me and my family.

God bless you and give you peace.
