Serenity

rain falling

Serenity

swathed in vacuous clouds

tucked in silent drops of rain

drifting curtains of misty spray–

this feeling when I pray

 

Serenity

away the pain of massacres

of triggers, blades and blame

protesting, powerless rage–

the muted venom of our age

 

Serenity

rest with me tonight

cuddle me gently in your arms

kiss me with your scented breath–

lift me from this deepening depth

 

But never bury me in the sand
