Listen to poem:
Take a deep breath Let yourself relax Close your eyes Come with me Inhale Exhale Let me guide you I’ll take you on a magical journey Give in to the moment Relax Breathe Close your eyes You’re there You’re there You’re outside the Taj Mahal A full moon bathes it in a silver glow It’s serene Take all the time you want Enjoy the scene There’s no need to hurry Inhale Exhale You’re tired Winding down It’s after hours And no one is around The stress of your day Is the coat you take off One sleeve at a time Let it drop to your feet Feel the freedom Of the weight off your shoulders Take a deep breath You’re at the main entrance You’re calm Slowly slip off Each shoe one at a time Take a deep breath Listen It’s just you and the echo of stillness It’s majestic with the high ceilings And luscious marble all around you Listen Feel the resounding silence It’s charming and inviting It’s calling you from within Go ahead Follow where it leads Enter as the richness Of the silence envelops you It’s a droning melody That feels peaceful and safe Soothing Beckoning You feel light You feel transported Your feet barely touch the floor Inhale Exhale Stay as long as you like You’re exactly Where you need to be Relax Take it all in When you’re ready to leave Have one last listen To the melody of silence Step over your shoes and coat You might as well Leave them behind You don’t need them Treasure this peacefulness you feel You’ve earned it Let it lead the way To a relaxing evening Where sleep will sway you Between the realms Of fantasy and reality Breathe Relax And enjoy your evening Read on air by invitation ~ March 13, 2022 'POETS HARBOUR' AP: Honorable Mention 2021 Submitted on October 18, 2021 for contest YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE NO.2 sponsored by L.MILTON HANKINS on August 30, 2021 for YOUR FAVORITE AUGUST 2021 POEM contest sponsored by CONSTANCE LA FRANCE - RANKED 1ST and August 24, 2021 for A BRIAN STRAND YOUR CHOICE contest sponsored by BRIAN STRAND - RANKED 1ST Originally posted on August 21, 2021

Line, I am late on POTD, but Congratulations! I enjoy this write, and in a sense, symbolic. My best lines here were; "Feel the resounding silence It’s charming and inviting It’s calling you from within." Truly stunning and a Fav for me. Best of Wishes, William

Line, your poem's form reminded me of a guided fantasy that takes the listener / reader to a place in their mind and involves the senses. Brilliant! I was lucky enough to visit the Taj Mahal in 2018 and I honestly felt I was back there.

Line, such a relaxing and calming write. I love the details you add like taking off your shoes and noticing the high ceilings. Meditation is most effective (for me, anyway) when there are simple details to focus on and walk your mind through. Congrats on your POTD for your beautiful writing ~ John

Congrats, Line, on this worthy recipient of POTD... We have elevated subway trains in Chicago, whose doors open to the silky strains of recorded voices, trilling such fare as "Doors Opening. Clark Street. Doors Opening. Clark Street. Doors Closing." I believe that substituting your mantras might be worth a few million a day to the Chicago Transit Authority. Give them a call. Tell them 'Wolf sent me.' (It's all patronage in Chicago, you know. lol)... Enjoy the ride, Line! ~ Joy, Gershon
