From a distance, stillness

There is a quiet peacefulness 
That frequently eludes us 
As we slog through the chaos of daily life — 
A busyness that surely exists 
In farms as well as cities: 
It’s only distance that allows us 
To see the stillness of the scene. 
Meditation allows us to achieve that distance 
While still in the midst of life; 
To find the still calm center 
That lies at the root of existence…
