A portrait, lay in front of me
Lush green meadows,
A man in the distant, a tiny speck.
The sound of nature,
Trees speaking unto bushes
With murmurs and hushes
A sound, so soothing.
Easy winds make me feel gentle
As I return from a war of sorts
Ease me through the day
Ease my sorrow away.
A parakeet flies by me,
In her flight, I could see glee
Fluttering encoded secrets from feathers
To her ever faithful friend, the skies.
I close my eyes,
A feeling of profound peace
With the sound of the seas.
I was yearning for a door, a chance
Until I fell into nature’s trance.
