    I see
    eucalyptus trees
    and feel a chamomile
    breeze blowing I
    smell Earl Grey simmering
    somewhere and
    clouds gathering to
    meet and hold back the rains
    Peppermint parties are thrown
    and stress takes a
    "leave of absence"
    I see the headstone
    of pain, hopelessness, and
    faithlessness
    lined up on the grassy knoll
    I see tomorrow coming
    where we all are at peace
    and together side by side

    loving
    hugging
    and laughing
    together.

    and The Blak Kings

    Nice one to bring back. Not only could I envision the calmness, I could smell it as well. What a wonderful vision.
