Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip inspired me to share this with you!
i’m requiring peace
genuine, calm reflections
in sacred spaces
This poem really makes me look forward to Summer! I love the construction and flow of it. The stanza in the middle reminds me of arms hanging down on the lounge chair.
in warm, wet silk.
Soothing envelopment of my body
heals and reenergizes my mind and limbs.
I’ll splash in this
My happy place awaits my presence.
To all my beach fans! I’m missing this form of healing. Are you?
the warmth surrounds me
velvet softness cleanses me
peace rises within
detaching from the bothers
find me at the beach
Relaxation can occur when I put my mind to it. Sounds silly, doesn’t it? But I really do have to plan for it! And the place where that is best accomplished for me is at the beach. Give me blue water, palm trees, white sand, a cabana to relax and there is literally nothing that will stop me from relaxing. How could I not think I’m in my personal paradise laying next to my semi-conscious hubs listening to the sounds of the ocean and the wildlife circling above? To me, a cloudy day at the beach is better than being embroiled in the day-to-day of the hectic life or even doing the things I enjoy in the privacy of my home. It’s a sense of completely letting go of control, and that is very relaxing to me. The beach is the only place my mind seems to just dispense of the focused habits I force myself to manage in my “real world”. The pics above are from our favorite resort in Cancun and a trip we took to Tulum, Mexico.
Say it with me “Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!” Thanks, Sadje! I will never tire of talking, thinking or being at a beautiful beach! 🙂
Sure do miss my holy water.
The food too. Oh, Covid-19, how much do I hate thee? Let me count the ways…
