|When troubles twist and rend my mood
I mend my soul in solitude.
When green turns brown and love runs rude
I heal my heart in solitude.
I pause and I fall
into the quiet place.
When I attach to worldly aspirations
and compromise to win the brittle race,
I present my shiny knots and tensions
to the subtle solvent, the bindings to release.
I inhale the soothing silent ethers.
They smile upon my spirit and they put my mind at ease.
