Craving a retreat.
Needing rest, renewing my soul.
A quiet lagoon...
Floating in the salty, blue water,
the sun shining on my face-
caressing it and kissing it.
Tiny fish swimming along my side
nibbling and tugging at my fingers-
Time slows, becomes
My spirit soars
like the birds flying above.
Quiet-only the ripples of the water
in their gentle cadence
and the soft beating of my heart.
