Iceland by Mary Schmaling-Kearns



Thank you for this moment of pause

Of quiet stillness

You wrap your earthen arms

Around my heart and my mind

So I can hear my self


Take me away from all that is built

Created by human hands

As you press your spirit so close

to mine that I cannot escape

Your beating heart

pulsing in this landscape

Strong & vital as these mountains

Giving me deeper breaths

that keep me alive

Thank you for the delivery

of myself

I can exist simply

As the water does flow


With out trying

to its destination
