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

Burgundy Moon

with lightly treading steps
inhaling deep the richness before me
the breath of the trees
fill my lungs with purity

the tinged mist all around
and the reddish-pinkish orb barely there
brown thin tendrils reach to the sky
as if clamoring to hug it

the magic of this night draws me in
the whispers of the woods fill my head
as if begging for a dance under the burgundy moon
mystery and enchantments guide me further in

Reblog – The Sound of Songbirds by Penny Wilson

This piece magically transports me to this beautiful, serene place. Enjoy!

Penny Wilson Writes

To listen 
to my heartbeat 
and feel my lungs 
fill with air. 

To have nothing 
I have to do 
no place 
I'm expected 
to be. 

I want to listen 
to the 
quiet. 

The noise 
of this world 
has grown  

and I cannot endure 
much more. 

I wish to listen
as the stars 
find their path 
across the sky. 

I want to watch 
the morning dew 
dissipate 
with the rise 
of the sun. 

The sound 
of songbirds 
is enough 
for me.

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.

Surrender

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
