A gentle breeze Caressing skin Soothing soul Heart softening, slowly Time Away Nature’s healing potion Applied to weary soul Butterflies guiding our path Flitting to and fro – circling our heads Dancing – for us? Longwing Zebra, Gulf Fritillary Welcoming us home - to our better selves Rejoining pieces Torn asunder – by caregiving, by COVID Tri-colored Heron standing tall Gracefully soaring At peace beside turtle copse Ibis hunting at water’s edge Offering tender, loving eyes Holding gaze Touching soul Palm trees Spreading fronds Sheltering from heat Giving reprieve All is reprieve Salve for wounded spirit Beaten down by so much that is hard So much suffering in our world Now soaking up this healing place Full of glorious, restorative nature. Strong legged alligator Shiny midnight black skin Lying peacefully at water’s edge Threatening only in his sheer size and appearance An alligator after all I am awed by his mere presence Balance, beauty Gratitude for this time of retreat This time of joy Time spent with nature and loving companions I give thanks.
