Ducks cresting the ripples
On a still September day,
Boats idling in the sun,
Children coming out to play.
Trees shedding their leaves,
Light teasing shadows,
Dogs scenting contentment,
Peace reigns over this scene.

A Wander in the Woods

image

 

A wander in the woods.
Early morning and the mist rising.
Earth shedding its holy cloak.
Revel in golden anticipation
At the sight of natural flight,
Enduring wood and ageless rivers.
What wild forces flow here.
Away from humdrum worries,
This cathedral of green
Expands the eager heart.

Solitude

We need those quiet spaces
Sanctuary of serenity
Haven of hope
Retreat of reverence
Just as much as we need:
Love, water, touch, kindness.

We need those quiet spaces
To reflect and ponder
Upon the great mysteries
And untold beauties
We have yet to discover,
Travellers of the unkown.

We need those quiet spaces,
Plants hungry for the sun
To grow and nourish our selves,
Shedding tired skins and cold scars;
Refreshed in the bowl of peace,
Keen to taste the fruits
Once more.
