YEARN III

Yearning drives the centering
accumulating calmness spreads
silence, smoothing the pond
placid into serenity, the mind
still as storms rage around
jail cell walls crumble down
disappointments, helplessness
dissolve in unraveling, as knots
are cut in our thoughts centered
impatience evaporates, morning sun
lifts mist from green mountains
as I yearn to be one.
