The world suffers.
The patio is

our shield.
Wine fills

we’re careful
not to shatter

like human lives
across the globe.

The dog snores
without a care.

fly like
the Blue Angels.

A warm breeze
winds its way
in between us
and the roses

Silence –
a soothing

And yet,
we know
what lies
on the

other side
of silence.

The world aches
where peace
is far removed
from day-to-day.

  1. Beautifully penned dear Lauren… My glass will be chinked this evening along with yours from our garden swing.. As I chill in the warm this evening has to offer… We create our peace from within… Whether it be our garden’s four walls, or our hearts..
    May we continue to absorb that Peace dearest Lauren..
    Love and Blessings my friend 🙂

    1. Thanks, Sue, for your beautiful words. I thought of you last night when we enjoyed the peaceful ambiance of our patio. I agree, we create our peace from within during these unsettling times. Love and hugs to you, my friend, and have a relaxing Sunday. 💗🌼

    1. Thanks, Ian. We have to find our own place of solace to balance all the unrest in the world. We need to stay informed, but it’s wise to avoid getting overwhelmed, while also doing what we can to help even in a small way.

  2. Nature can teach us so much, when we are willing to listen! There is a lot of pain and suffering in the world, it is important to disconnect from that and reconnect within. Many Blessings to you Lauren! xoxo
