Sanctuary

"We live in a time of chaos,
not only in a world of wars,
but the war within one's self."


My mind has too many negative thoughts.
It's too noisy for my muse to be heard.
I've created a sanctuary of calm.
A place within where my soul can dwell.
I removed the harsh realities of hell.
Turning my back on my clamorous mind,
I sweep away the clutter and noise.
I can now foster my creativity within,
Embracing my reborn muse once again.

    Sometimes it is hard to listen when so much is going on around and inside when we are fighting within over what we should do, what is right, and what we really want to do..Great work expressing such wonderful thoughts..Thanks for stopping by..We have had rain and I think it is going to turn cold here again..Sad plight for the trees that have flowered..Sara

    A tender write Connie, I agree with you, often the world is much too noisy. We need to start appreciating the silence and embrace the peaceful whispers of a quiet listening soul. Well said my friend, have yourself a peaceful Sunday, love xxx
