I’m Going Away

I’m going away to my happy place
I’ll be back in a little while
Don’t bother searching for me
It’s far from physical reach
But close as a beating heart

I will fly through the clouds
Play like a dolphin in the sea
Sit as a blooming lotus on water
Breathing deeply of smokeless air
Basking in the suns warm spring

When I do come back home
The transformation will be complete
Look deeply in the soul of my eyes
You will find a clear tranquil pond
And a lotus I brought back with me

The Calling

lakeThe calling has reached deep within my heart
in a purposeful beat echoing in the
halls of my distracted mind

The yearning I can no longer deny anymore as
the sounds of the beat of my heart becomes
louder with each second of passing time

I begin to imagine the sun embracing my
skin and the cool touch of the breeze
gently brushing my face

The sounds of nature sing its lullaby
putting me in the safe cradle of its
arms as time slows to a snail pace

The tranquility of the moment sets in
and my heart slows within the silent
waters of my empty thoughts

The sun paints a golden road across the
waters to the place my heart has
fervently sought
