your thimbled fingers

will not protect

from the sting

of the merging seas.

far beyond the bite

of wounding wind,

is the peace you seek,

a loving refuge

in life’s internal keep,

a singularity of being,

where stars gather deep.

    1. Thank you. I understand about envy and I am not immune. I tell my students that it usually points to a place we think is lacking in ourselves. Believe me, I have experience with this…yoga for instance (not graceful or flexible😉). The instructor always says to pay attention to your strengths (mine is determination…nice for “stubborn”). Call for what you think you lack and keep working. Definitely not easy. Everything is relative anyway.😊✨
