Welcome Home

A meandering walk through the forest
smoothed the rough edges of the day,
one filled to the brim with the tediousness
of digits and maddening phone calls.

In the backdrop of shrills and chirps,
stress rolls down the spine and away,
deep breaths in bringing ever quicker relief
as fresh air and sunshine cling like a loved ones hug.

Nature’s smells and sounds have a way
of embedding in our bodies, releasing
the tension so tightly packed in us.
Every little bit we are begins to reconnect to Mother.

with unease and tension
come challenged perspectives
a need to smooth the rough edges
of our thoughts
and soothe inflamed minds
distractions welcomed

turn off technology
shut down the fear
escape from that big square
on the wall
or that little screen
in your hand

find some peace
in the beauty of nature
gain some strength
in the power of majesty
breathe in hope
exhale calm

The View

the bold elegance
of this magnificent sky
it feels so imaginary
and overwhelming
but also a calming haven
in times of agitation
a retreat
when it’s become
all too much
it is a refuge
for my sanity

Solitary World

Untitled

dreams of isolation
a cerebral pull
to a secluded island
a craving for solitude

choosing peace
and nature
escaping to freedom
and bliss

white smooth perfection
envelopes my feet
as i walk
to the horizon

pristine water
saturates my pores
cleans my soul
i’m weightless, so calm

carried away
on the whim of the ocean
the loud silence of the waves
pushing me further to tranquility

I own the perfect island.

Chimes

Untitled

gentle breezes move along the edges
pushing objects with delicacy
the subtle force reveals a sweet sound

a hectic mind tunes in
releases the chaotic jumble
and listens to the melody

peace spreads in that moment
deep breaths filling in the spaces of pain
a human is moved to tranquility
