Eye of the Storm

Fast feelings
Rushed encounters
All so fast, swirling
Dancing around me
The news on the radio
Fires and broken hearts
The storms of daily life
I am hit by wave after wave
Swept off my feet by the
Strong winds of momentum
It all takes me away
Feeling unsupported
I close my eyes and pray
Diving in and joining my heart
I feel a sudden change in the air
A calm breeze, a slow wave
A vortex of peace calls for me
It pulls me to the center
Everything slows down
I am at the seat of the soul
I am the eye of the storm
Still, I watch it all
Swirling around me
It all comes, and goes
Comes, and goes

We are the eyes.
