poem: Taking for granted

taking for granted

no need for something more
simplicity like varnished wood
trust like a well-loved child
familiarity of years
accepting what is offered
settling inside like a leaf onto water
no urgency of seeking
no heat of pursuit
where did yearning go?
here is stillness with slight breeze
gratitude underneath like a hidden stream.

from my book, The Spaces Between
