Indaily – The beauty that is found

Indaily Adelaide’s independent news published my  poem – The beauty that is found

The beauty that is found

In the days that tire the bones
the mind looks to escape
step back, breathe slow
observe time pass by

Refocus, delve within
break free in the reflection
reopen your heart
let it guide your sight

Hear the rain fall,
drop by drop
feel the sunshine,
flush of warmth
feel the sand at your feet,
sink them deep
lay still in the gentle embrace,
hug tighter
watch the light rise and fall,
stars sparkle
as the moon illuminates
unwind as the water washes it all away

Give it a moment,
let the tears fall
pick up strength
radiant beauty shines through.
