Relaxation finds me beneath this tree
pondering life and sweet serenity
Butterflies do their carefree dance
in the air is the scent of romance
From where I sit in a patch of shade
squirrels scamper on the carpet of jade
Birds join in with a song or two
their melodies erase my moods of blue
Life bounces by, yet stillness abounds
calming every nerve with all unique sounds
This pillar of strength shelters and embraces
while emotions change to different faces
I close my eyes to the whispers of the breeze
allowing my mind to finally be at ease

As I read your closing line, Lauren, I had a sudden sense (or realization?) that I was suspended in the calmness of leisure as though in the gentle sway of a hammock! Nicely written and it would seem a good number of our friends here would agree!
What a wonderful place to be, Don, relaxing in a hammock. Something we don’t have, but we could add it to our list of things to buy! 🙂 Thanks so much for your kind words and I’m surprised this poem has been so well received. We never know the outcome once we click publish, but I’m grateful, to say the least…have a wonderful rest of the week!
A beautiful relaxing writing Lauren.
I could imagine the sweet strains of a violin, softly lingering in a daydream reverie.
