I need a quiet place to rest, where I can sit in hidden bliss, a leafy place with blossoms dressed, anointed by their shadowed kiss— a place out of the glare and heat, where sunlight offers dappled alms, to close my eyes in cool retreat, as breezes fondle shifting palms. I need to hear the silvery flow as water glides beneath my lair and drifts along where worries go, so very far away from there. And I will sit in tranquil thought, the world turned quiet, calm and still, while swirling through this shaded spot, my breath blooms like a daffodil. If only I would be so blessed! I need a quiet place to rest.

Your words or meditative to my soul, Katharine, and the picture you choose fits the scene you paint well. We all need a place like the one you describe for times of meditation and prayer. Smiles~ Blessings, Bill
