At last contentment is undulating around me.
The fragmented shards of discord quieted and still.
The year began in mayhem and ends in peaceful silence.
A ceasefire in hostilities; an armistice. Resolution.
In conclusion, I am happy with the simplicity I found;
the pruning of possessions, the clarity of clearing;
space, time, direction and a settling into certitude.
A period of recuperation; a time of renewal.
I reached deep into my soul and found a pool of tranquility.
Its waters cleansed and refreshed me and I splashed
its sparkling rejuvenation into the bleak crevices
of discontentment, emerging energised and whole.
Now contentment is undulating around me and I am strong.
I belong at last. The past is past and the future beckons.
The year began in mayhem and ends in peaceful resolution,
and, in conclusion, I am happy with the simplicity I found.
