Dear Serenity,

Though a raindrop comes from a storm
once fallen, it sits still on a window sill.
Such noblesse is present in you and me
                 it is human dignity.
Violent frothings from whence it came The Sea
a droplet's woe is commonplace
                 With that, comes Humility.

When pondering nature,
one in reality ponders one's self.
Tranquility is not to be sought,
one need only embrace it.

Let your senses roam
let your horizons expand
let stillness drown your extremities
This quiet familiarity from within
when nary a whisper disturbs you
                 lovingly serene.


I like how Rilke describes the 'vastness' of Solitude. I find it soothing.
