Lightness of Being

Life’s notes of simplicity flow soothingly in stillness like a lone white swan swimming languidly through silent ripples on a lake in the early morn. How I long to flow along in nature’s pure tranquility cast off cluttered burdens and fling life’s complexities to the farthest shores. To find freedom in space brings serenity to the soul peaceful presence of mind comfort, calmness and clarity. For when I cast off the unnecessary accoutrements of life, I can relish in the joy of the present and live lavishly in lightness of being. Written on 12/16/2018

I love the spirit of your introspective poem, Laura, and the longing to find tranquility among life’s complexities.. living in the precious and present moment, casting off future and past worries, is indeed, a joy to be relished. A beautifully expressive poem that shines, my friend. Warmest wishes always.. ~Susan
