Peace

Sadje’s What do you see #130

my surroundings easily force me to breathe in the tranquility
i’m seduced to engage with a nature free from annoyance
my being is in harmony with the world
shhhhh listen to the quiet, you can hear it
it’s like being gently enveloped by the serene
all the memories of conflicts dissipate
bliss and colors are magnified to a brilliant degree
all my senses breathe it in deep
into the interior of my soul
and then, I exhale contentment

No more…

wars
hatred
pain
lies
violence
abuse
crying
indifference
assholes
shame
guilt
anger
sobbing
frustration
neglect
discrimination

There will be an end to enduring suffering.
A permanent respite from all that is wrong with the world.

Finally peace.

Crashing Into Peace

turquoise shorelines beckon me
the subtle dissonance of the waves resonates in my ears
all the pent up tension leaves my body
as each easy footprint lands in the sand and water
the shh of wooshing waves
makes me one with nature
my senses come alive with her female charms
with her sensual colors and soft winds
seducing me to stay
the themes of relaxation surround me
the release i experience
speaks for itself 

Splash!

Excitedly, the ocean welcomes me back with its liquid embrace.

Summer is over, but thoughts of the ocean continue to draw my mind back to sunny landscapes of white sand, blue water, palm trees, and the variety of activities nature’s playground offers. The images temporarily fade away as I step out into the cooling winds and changing colors around me. Shortly after that, my mind wants to return to where the sun heats the sand and my body. The place where ease is the staple of the day, and night promises no worries.

I’m homesick for paradise.

A Path To Peace

whether with deliberation
or from exhaustion

there will come a time
when steps need to be taken

to safeguard our sanity
and build back a reserve

taking the best route
to heal and restore

whether movement, nature, meditation
resting, music or books

that which provides respite
will lead us back to reality

Connected

I Write Her

There’s a substantive intimacy in nature. It’s filling.
The smell of earth satisfying and rejuvenating.

The wind enveloping you in its invisible caress.
Touching without, healing within.

Hello, beautiful bird on a sunny day!
Seeing you brings me joy and a smile.

The smile of someone engaged.

I feel my best friend at that moment.
And I miss her.

It’s me looking through her eyes, but she’s not there.
For a moment I could cry.

From her, I learned the wisdom of these significant bits of the day.

She’d be in that moment with me graciously approving
and being grateful for the beauty of our surroundings.

My friend would love you too, beautiful bird.

And I love her.

The Roar Of Peace

my frazzled soul
lightens
       then leans 
into the beckoning of birdsong
drawing me in further

all my senses imbibe deeply
the multitude of earthtones
and various shades of green
the rapid flow of moisture
beguiling, mesmerizing 

the rush of the river
grounds my senses
replaces tension with ease
and fills every pore of me
with enchantment  

i am nourished...

Want to feel this calm? Listen HERE.

White Bird

in solitude
the connection is binding
our surroundings enhance, nourish and replenish us

once again

feeling whole and put back together
from a reality drilling us down
into a million tiny pieces

once again

recapturing the pieces of our souls
standing one with nature
the giver of life force

once again
