Eye of the storm

The carpenter taught that
the Kingdom of Heaven
is within. It is there
that the relationship with God
can be fostered.

A Vietnamese Buddhist monk,
whose writing I was once fond of,
wrote, peace is within, to find it,
look inside.

Meteorologists say
that the eye
of the storm is
the only calm,
the only peace
that the storm knows.

There have been
many times in my life
where I looked out
at everything around me
and all I knew
was a storm.

These days are filled
with much clearer weather.
I try to know the eye,
try to see inside.
as it seems that
is what people
have been saying
all along.
