Quiet Retreat

 

Liquid amber calm

Gentle ripples glistening

River waters reflecting

A golden glow

 

Frail foliage silhouetted

Against a brazen sky

Melting daylight withers

Into dusk

 

Basking in the glory

Of these abundant gifts

A myriad of pleasures

To indulge

 

My muted mind surrenders

To this healing balm

A therapeutic tonic

To my wounds

 

How simply we can numb

The traumas of our past

By being intently present

Here and now

 

Bathing in blatant beauty

Traversing tranquil scenes

Drinking in the nectar

Of quiet retreat

 

Removing petulant pathways

With potent imagery

Creating delightful detours

To distract

 

Drugs cannot deliver

This iridescent relief

Nor alcohol produce

This mute escape

 

It is our mental power

So vivid and replete

That provides the very essence

Of our salvation
