Poem: Cinquins (2,4,6,8,2) – ” A Place To Breathe” #wordhighjuly #amwriting

——

There are,

Places we find, 

The world scars our being.

Sanctuary is needed, 

What’s yours? 

——

In our, 

Minds overwhelmed, 

By everything we need–

To do, but relief comes with breathing,

In, out.

——–

Perhaps, 

It’s a place with, 

Grassy knolls and sun beams bright, 

Where yoga mats lay, and you pose and,

Stretch-out.

—–

Release, 

Everything pent —

Up inside your heart box, 

From the years, shoving secrets deep, 

Relax.

—–

Tell who, 

You must and let, 

Your friend know, these hard times, 

You’re letting them all go, melting,

Away.

—–

Perhaps, 

It’s a place with, 

A lake and fishing poles, 

And a serenity found in quiet, 

Have peace.

——

Maybe, 

You read books and, 

Spend the whole day absorbed, 

Letting time pass, body revives,

Mind rests.

——-

Maybe,

You run because, 

Endorphins flow and you —

Feel alive on pavement jogging.

Freeing.

——-

Perhaps, 

You spend the day, 

With an old friend, or your spouse.

Maybe you pretend you are both young.

Dreaming.

——-

Or you, 

Could travel far, 

See art, culture breathe new —

Experiences and let wanderlust, 

Take you.

——-

Wherever, 

You go, you need

Find your kalinai, 

Serenity, deep in your soul.

Peace be.

  1. A sun-beamed grassy place with yoga mats. Even though I don’t practice, I like this scene. The places you describe are all endearing, and most likely each part is a favorite for some. Versatility in achieving satisfaction and tranquility. It’s smart and helpful to show that there is more than one way.

    1. Thanks Christopher. Hopefully, you could relate to something. I think we all need that space of tranquility or peace in our life, it makes such a difference. Glad you like the yoga image, it’s fun to do outside sometimes 🙂

      1. Yes, I can relate. You know, I’ve never done yoga outside. That sounds appealing! (Contemplation outside, yes, Meditation, too.) Thanks for stretching me (well, pardon an unintentional yoga-pun) and all the readers here.
