Day 36/365

Again our feet have led us to 

a shady place for rest long overdue

our busy lives have created here

a  constant need to go or fear

of solitude or moments still

perhaps the fear of what we'll feel

when no distractions have a hold

and introspection begins to unroll

but have no fear my dearest friend

for stillness there I recommend

within this place of serenity

is an understated therapy

within the trees and lovely breeze

is found a peacefulness to rival the sea's

feel the music of the birds 

and picture in your mind the verbs

let the healing powers there 

forgive your troubles and soothe despair.
