Sanctuary

Sanctuary

Tall grasses at
water’s edge 
as green as limes
Exotic blooms of lotus
flowering abundantly
time after time
 
Protective trees
shielding a sacred spot
where serenity is found
A place to regroup
and clear the mind
never hearing a sound

    A beautiful poem, Christine…and this spot was a perfect sanctuary, where the only sound was birdsong and the whisper of a dragonfly’s wings.

    Your own little #SecretSpot B-) . When I was a kid, we’d have our own little spot out on the woods where we’d build big forts and then get mad when some other kids would come and trash it while we were gone. This reminded me of those good times.
