This Tranquility

This Tranquility
    by Amy Swanson

shimmers of light 

                  heaven soft ... 

sparkling stardances

                   moonlit mist ...

                                                      *do you remember*

echoes ...

       (oh so faint)

                   of far away


                                         in my soul's memory



                        violet *iridescence*

                                        falling new


                                                       my spirit

                                                   to dream again...

                                              within this ageless garden

                                                     simplicity's oasis



           cascade ...

                  mystic waterfall
                             hues of rainbowed light

                                       sun-drenched prisms

                                                       crystalline pure

                                                                   flow down

                                                                          from heaven's realms

~ melting ~

         into this rushing river

                            of my soul...

                                                           with waves of blissful peace

Listen close-!

             serenity's song -- 


only the heart 

     can hear

          these gentle strains ... 

                                 melodious enchantment



Lush forest green -

                   life, alive

                                Warm marigold glow -

                                                    sunshine, envelopes

... all becoming 

                         this tranquility.

    Beautiful thought and imagery, free verse is a good choice for this one. Gives the peaceful feeling of standing maybe by the ocean at night, on a clear night and feel the breeze on the face. Peaceful, I like it. Thanks for sharing, Judy Riley
