dawning of a new day
or close of a day spent
we feel an excitement
matters not, matters not
we are but passersby
we're here for an instant
we're gone eternity
if we think upon thought
and let it die slow death
we rob thought of substance
we walk through the swamp road
a sense of quiet takes hold
what used to make us sad
we pause on our journey
find a gnarled cypress root
we sit upon it
listen to nature's song
don't know how we got here
don't know how long we'll stay
we enjoy the moment
as we empty our mind
of what we used to think
about sincerity
pettiness put aside
we breathe in earth's perfume
listen to nature's voice
the beauty surrounds us
mists from slow bayou
the aroma of cypress
where mean ole gators hide

No doubt then, peace is not always where you find it, but more when and where you create it.

Enjoyed the read as always, Mr. Bolton.

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...

Yep! You got that right, PU . . .

Building and appreciating your very own peace, is the only way to go. I have found that to be true over the years. Thank you.
