sometimes, by the flowing stream of gentle rains, i rest…
feeling the still depth of my soul
darkness flowing slowly up and out
into the grey skies
of eternal paths

mossy, stone embankments
sooth my eyes
water splashing up to wash my face
baptising me with strength for another day

winged allies
bring my separate members together
giving me hope
sustenance; quenching thirst with cooling waters

birdsong and forest harmony
cascade through
i am lifted with Nature’s rejoice
i have hope in Nature’s infinite Nature
