The Key to Courage

I always come to the water gardens to find stillness. That piece of tranquillity that allows the doubts and fears inside me to be held back. In that peace I can meditate and in my meditations I can draw on my inner spirit to give me the courage I need. It is difficult if not impossible to reach that power inside the soul in the chaos of everyday living. The body and mind are running on instinct and rarely have time to pause in contemplation. Here in the water gardens I can find that time and submerge myself in sub-conscious thought.


A breath hidden
beneath still waters of time
there lies courage

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
