By R. Black

Soft, yet stimulating, I had forgotten..

The easy silence of nature which

wraps itself around me, a velvet blanket of stars

with earnest intent, like a dot to dot

children’s book pointing the way.

My breath, frosted, absorbed, tension

is stripped, I merge into the earth, grounded, whole, like

the missing pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle

complete, life, tranquil, peace reclaims me.
