Driving home I caught a glimpse
Of the lake amid the wood
without thinking I turned around
to where the road marker stood

Parking, I left my car and
walked to the waterís edge
A waterfall embraced the surface
As it fell from a granite ledge

I donít know how long I sat there
Listening to the sounds of peace
I donít remember thinking at all
For a time the world seemed to cease

Finally I sighed and stood up
Wishing I could take this place
Tuck it in my pocket in some way
To keep this smile upon my face

As I drove off, I glanced up
The route marker read 223
I would remember and return
To this place, this respite for me

All day I kept the vision
Of the waterfall under the tree
I know I will return there again
To the peace of route marker 223

Sharon~
This reminded me of the year I spent living
at the Grand Canyon.  I had my favorite secluded
spot where I would go and just sit...sometimes
for hours at a time.  There is nothing cooler
than sitting in the rain on the south rim of the canyon
and watching a lightning storm on the north rim.
Sometimes, I REALLY miss living up there...like right now.  
Thanks for sharing this.
Hugs,
~Vicky

And now, you give Sanctuary
its name.
