A magic daily medicine

Is there a position going
for doctor to the world?
If I should ever gain such a position
the very first thing
(and perhaps the only thing)
I should prescribe
would be a good measure of silence

each

and

every

day

for I am wide-mouthed in wonder
again and again
at how a single moment
of the truest silence
is like a sword through all my sickness.

Sit with me a moment now, won’t you?
The silence reveals herself so easily
when we rest together like this.

Now, tell me,
where did our problems go?

Love and courage,

Leah
