Reflective Meditation- Poetry
Breathe Deeply Exhale Slowly
Breathe deeply and please refrain
From reminiscing back to hurtful pain
Just let the moment soothe, caressing you as it takes you away
To distant shores of sweet yesterday
Breathe deeply, exhale slowly once more
Eyes closed, the inner soul reaching for an unopened door
Even though it is snowing again outside
You're toasty warm inside
Breathe deeply, exhale slowly let the moment live within
Where thoughts calmly take you to a higher horizon
Savor the distance you have traveled thus far
Listen fervently as the rolling tide guides you toward a twinkling star
Envision the fluffy clouds as they form images of angels and heavenly hosts
Trumpets, singing, laughter the golden gate posts
Breathe deeply, exhale slowly and dream of a bright sunlit day tomorrow
Where everything is in perfect harmony, void of inward sorrow
Soon warmth will again cover this frigid earth
And bring back bubbling brooks and seeds of miraculous new birth.

My muse is constantly bugging me to take her south to lay in the sun on sandy beaches in Florida. Maybe I will. The election blues have got to go!
I was watching the sunset on a drab, gloomy day, missing my hummingbird's who had already flown South, and watching my squirrel, Squiggley store pecans for the winter when my muse took flight.
