Monday’s Poem: Retreat Time (Renewal)

Rosemary and I are away for a long weekend retreat. We are assessing values, making plans, adjusting and transforming. In anticipation of this activity I wrote this:

Retreat Time

Deep Winter, cold:
Withdraw, pull in,
Retain, restrain;
Inside is warm.

Quiet time, ease:
Relax, go in,
Let go, let god;
Practice presence.

Retreat time, now:
Visions flow in,
Hear, smell, taste, touch.
New Mind, new you!
