I leave my four walls and walk away from the hardness And coldness of my surroundings I find the steps that have no footprints Deep into nature’s sanctuary With each step I feel more alive And regain a part of myself I need this I ache for this I have longed for this Each step brings with it The awareness of how long it’s actually been I plant my feet on the softness Of the earth I breathe in uncorrupted air pure and healing I sit on pillows of the greenest mosses And fill my senses Nature’s aria Scents that I savor The peace, oh God yes, the peace I close my eyes as my emotions settle God how beautiful you have made this world This is the inner sanctum The true holy of holies It restores my soul Invigorates my devotion to you Blesses me with an ardor for life And brings me peace There is harmony between Mind, body and soul A union between myself, nature, and You And I am in one accord Each time when I visit I wonder Have I stayed away too long Once again will you be able to revivify me to consciousness Resuscitate my spirit and make me whole And always the answer is Amen

I like the feel of this. A touch iof serenity and peace in a messed up world. God never created anything ugly. It is man that attahes the ugliness. I liked this one. God Bless. Vince

Simply Beautiful Ms Lady...I long for taking those walks and just leaving all my worries and burdens behind and just enveloping myself in all the beauty that God created.Spending time with him is always a blessing but it is even better when you are surrounded by all his glorious works.You sang so sweetly here.I have been locked up for far to long and I wanna break free, run through the fields, smell the flowers,stare into the clouds and dance in the rain. ~~Breathtaking~~ Take care GB Tyesha

Oh...Laurie...there are times when I need that walk, that place you have found to resuscitate the sit on pillows of green moss, and find peace. Something we all need to find now and then. What a wonderful poem...AMEN! ~love ya, Carrie

Dear Laurie, it's been way too long for me too. This, your beautiful write, I take as a sign. I am engulfed in your 'restoration' and so inspired by the miracle and revelation within your words. Very beautifully expressed. Love, Shar
