Mindfully Lost In Serenity

by Shauna   Sep 13, 2007

Stars soar over the ocean,
The hues magnificent
The pastels of purple, blue, and pink
Make it a journey worthwhile.

Not quite a sunset
But where the line lies
Between night and day

The breeze brushes my cheek
Peaking across the wondrous rock

Now glancing down, far,
Toward the gleaming water
Staring at the horizon, at its beauty

Wishing I was there
Up in the sky where it is
So blissful and content--

But something is not right,
Taking the quality of my affection.
As if a color forgotten in a rainbow

But then of course,
It would not be a rainbow
Just dreadful dyes lingering in the sky

The breeze strengthens into a dare wind
Getting colder and bitter

The sky begins to weep
The soft raindrops dampen my locks.

Worried and confused,
Or maybe melodramatic?
Wondering why all is so poignant
Why nothing is as joyous

But wait,
Who is that
Behind the tree that drapes
The picturesque view?

A white dove flutters
Through the leaves and
Escapes into the horizon

Ahh, the breeze is warm again.
The sky no longer weeps.
The colors are found and aligned

Drowsiness consumes me,
And my eyes are closed
Knowing everything is in place once again.
