A Geordie In The Himalaya

I learn.

Tortoiseshell butterfly, McLeod Ganj

In solitude, I learn self-reliance;
In self-reliance, I learn comfort.
In sunsets, I learn release;
In release, I learn stillness.
In demands, I learn boundaries;
In boundaries, I learn strength.
In agitation, I learn to breathe;
In the breath, I learn joy.
In the dawn, I learn gratitude;
In gratitude, I learn peace.
In fatigue, I learn compassion,
In compassion, I see grace.
In change, I learn acceptance;
In acceptance, I learn love.
