swathed in vacuous clouds

tucked in silent drops of rain

drifting curtains of misty spray–

this feeling when I pray


away the pain of massacres

of triggers, blades and blame

protesting, powerless rage–

the muted venom of our age


rest with me tonight

cuddle me gently in your arms

kiss me with your scented breath–

lift me from this deepening depth

But never bury me in the sand

    I been waiting for you!

    Thank you so much for this! Serenity is very much needed in my neck of the woods. This piece is so calming and so thoughtful.

    I been missing you girl but I know better than to push the giving tree! The last thing I would want to do is wear her out..

    Always much love and light to you my sweet!

    1. Ah! you’re so sweet Gwin. I’ll be dipping in and out for a while until I have things sorted out.
      I need serenity as much as everyone else, we have lots happening here too on a daily basis and it just gets too much. I’ll pop over to you shortly. The one good thing about today is that we’re going to the George Benson show tonight and I’m looking forward to that. I’ll try and check in later. Btw had a good laugh about that Denzel Washington thing ( far, far from that 😀 ) Best. Chevvy.

    1. I am dear – that’s why I posted this poem. The protests and sense of powerlessness are ever prevalent here too and I vacillate between wanting to be cocooned and the need to do something. But you go on and enjoy your holiday, soon you’ll be back in the thick of it so enjoy the relief😀

  2. Love this, so perfect in the wake of the incident in Orlando FL here in the USA. Brought to mind the Serenity Prayer, to accept what we cannot change, change what we can, etc. In the end we can only change ourselves, our own hearts. And pray for positive change in others. Thanks, Chev 🙂

    1. Thanks Joan. You know the world has become so volatile right now.
      Someone left a terrible note on my car windscreen the other day and it evoked so many emotions that this poem was part of a response to it.
      I think there are so many people walking around with angst they may not even be aware of.

      On a lighter note I’d love to know which personality are you on the Thumbs Up post that I reblogged.😀
