Serenity

The Drakensberg: Chevvy8

I found her there,

When I opened my eyes,

Composed and regal, a gracious surprise.

 

She reached out,

Taking my hand in hers,

Leaned in and whispered my name.

 

With words gentle and soft,

Her meaning and intention were clear.

She cuddled me, said I had nothing to fear.

 

If you truly love she said:

Fear will seek refuge elsewhere,

Clearing space for new occupants.

 

Invite them in she said:

Time has come for the kiss of joy,

The delight of peace, the ascension of spirit.

 

Stop listening she said:

To the voices of malice and doubt,

The nay-sayers, the castigators, the cynics.

 

I was amazed to find

A soothing-calm envelope me,

As I stepped out of my faded raiments.

 

When I opened my window,

I saw the resplendence of a bright new day.

A new dawn of serenity had come my way!

    1. Hello David. Thank you for your comment. I guess for me, this was a reflective piece on what it takes for me to reach this state and what would serenity look and feel like. Minimalism is good though ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. We all have our way. Those first 2 lines got me right in. I like it that a reader can go where the reader wants…not necessarily what the writer wrote, which is how it is, a poem is a gateway…which is why poetry is good. ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers.
