Here beneath the majesty of tall pines
where air is clean and pure
is a place to breathe
Silence is draped in soft voile
on a head filled with noise
Soothing and calming
Restoring peace 
In solitude and stillness 
thoughts run free
Recollections dance before eyes
as if for the first time
The pleasure releasing anxiety 
from the choking vines of constraint
The gentle noises of nature
Inducing glorious slumber

        On a separate note Sadje, did you read Sue Vincent’s farewell post. It is heartbreaking. You can see it here. Thought you might like to respond as you used to participate in the write/photo prompts 🥲❤️

        I saw it and we did have a conversation! She is a wonderful and unique person with lots of courage. I really admire her.
