Ibrahim Ibn Salma

Serenity in Santa Barbara

She quiets her mind,
She sits still,
She listens;
To the wind,
To the trees
She listens to the silence of the moment,
Her tools – she carries  
As far as she can;
She lets the doubt, the fear, the anger
Burn down to ashes,
She releases the ashes as prayers
To heal the world.
