    repost for one seeking their peace...


    gentle breeze across the meadows
    as one generation tree sits hanging
    over the slow moving brook leaving
    its reflection in the late afternoon sun;

    sounds of summer dances over the
    shaded path as I walk towards the
    silouhette sitting on the brook’s edge
    awaiting the next gentle breeze;

    I see you sitting with your arms
    wrapped around your bent knees
    as your braids hang just below the
    neckline of the white linen dress;

    with each inhale your eyes close
    as though you are carried away
    on the changing of the breeze
    to fly high with the sparrows;

    I want to embrace you and yet I
    don’t want to interfere with the
    serenity you’ve captured as the
    afternoon greets the dusk;

    as I move closer to one whom
    dances within my smiles I look
    to find the reason that she has
    captivated my daily dreams;

    I kneel forward to see just what
    she has allowed to enter her
    moment of solitude and peace
    as she sits along the meadow;

    and I smile to find all that she
    envisions; all that she dreams
    can be found on the pages of
    her leather bound journal;

    of the love you
    profess
    but that response
    didn't go over well

    words out

    yo man
    when i want a beautiful loving read
    with depth

    i seek you

    continue your quest
