One Deep Breath - Comfort

here, restful shade,
there, old stones in the stream
enfolded in slow ripples

above, dancing leaves,
and wind like a slow caress,
below, the quiet earth

stillness and sweet
comfort not indoors, but under
this leaning tree

Written for the ever comforting spirits at One Deep Breath and particularly to Jennifer who recently lost her father to cancer. Jennifer, my thoughts are with you.
