Peace of Mind

When feet are guided on a path by forces unknown,
and all between you and the ghosts of the past is
the chirping of the birds, the sound of light
feet falling and the rhythm of your heart beating,
this is when enlightenment calls.

Listen now as nature speaks, calling unto
each and every cell of being and sentience,
let the worries of the day be washed away
for this is the one and only time
that you are truly yourself.

Freedom in life is fleeting
Always a rush, always someone elses property
for these stolen moments out there
freedom is granted in small things,
found in the strangest of places.

Written for Brian Millers Friday poetically, link in on One Stop today!

  1. And isn’t it wonderful to get out into those open spaces?..great write Shan! x

  2. oh this was peaceful shan – i liked it a lot…i also flee out into the nature when the burdens get too heavy and i need some space to breathe

  3. “Let the worries of the day be washed away” Yes please.
    The third verse is just so true its amazing and written so that you get a sense of just how fleeting it really is.

  4. “freedom is granted in small things,
    found in the strangest of places.”

    This +100. Nature reminds us that we are smaller than we think we are, so our problems seem tiny as well. Good work! 😀

  5. “… freedom is granted in small things,
    found in the strangest of places.”
    These profound words draw the perfect conclusion to an intensely emotional poem.

  6. Wouldn’t me and my little note book love to steal a moment in your hideout! Wonderful image, and goes with outsaying, wonderful writing. Loved your take on the prompt, and as always, a much enjoyed visit. Until next time! 🙂

  7. Wonderful words! The beauty of nature is all around us – even in the strangest of places – and we should breathe it in and value it – but so many of us don’t even notice it.
