At Peace – Poem of the Month – June 2022

At Peace

With nothing but my own thoughts
to keep me company
I sit in silence
Tendrils of light are streaming
through the trees, captivating
my imagination and inspiring my muse
Losing myself in wonder I allow
these moments to dream, ignoring 
what I think must be done
When still, I understand the process
Nature is drawing me back 
balancing my weary mind
reminding me to breathe deep
and to cease the constant motion
if only for moments
That I might repair body and soul
Without which I am of little use

    I absolutely love this and can relate so well. Your words reminded me of the beauty and peace of Nature, of which I have been too long without. I think you’ve inspired a getaway for me. Thank you!

    Recharging. Yes, I am learning the benefit of a peaceful stroll through the forest these days. I am learning to be okay with stillness.

      Unfortunately I find stillness through exhaustion lately. Not a good thing, I know. But when I can be still it feels amazing and there’s no better place than being out in nature ☺️💕 Thanks K
