BECALMED







Today I am posting a poem written for those of us who search for peace of mind in the midst of the storm. With love and gratitude to my dear friends.





BECALMED


In the eye of the storm,
wearied by frenzied winds,
tossed into quiet calm,
momentary peace descends.

Heavy lids close as head dips,
hands unclench, fingers release,
weight sinks into soft welcome,
breath slows as soul is freed.

Flying high over mountains,
skimming spiked pine tops,
swoop low over olive groves,
gnarled gnomes trimmed with silver.

Carried on citric valley breeze,
funneled floating between
sleeping giants guarding passage 
to bay curved in sand smile.

Catch a rising warmth,
sky flyer soaring,
dazzled by healing light,
sun mirrored on gilded sea.

In flight find freedom,
sea charge, strength renewed,
mind calmed in balance,
as voice carries and spirit flows.
