Retreat for Renewal

img_8583

Quite a few years ago

Had a retreat at a Mission.

No newspapers, no television,

No phone calls outgoing or incoming,

Certain hours of the day –

No conversation with anyone.

Relaxed walk in the Mission,

Searching of the heart and soul,

Mind on the reflection.

Retreat such as this

Was hard for some

Who was constantly in action.

By the second day

Some made a commitment.

Through the quietness, non-action,

Came the renewal of inner strength and peace .
