I have been embraced
by the chilling presence
I have wondered
where the niche
designed for me
exists in this world
in which my breaths
I have waited
for the glow
But when I take
that wise step
into the splendor
listen to the trees
whisper their sagacity,
feel the flowing rivers
move my pain,
creating vast distance
between it and me,
I have been revived
by the compassion
that nature offers

I love the word sagacious and was surprised to see a form of it in your delightful poem. Well done, Lauren,
I do, too, John, and wanted to fit it in somehow. I’m glad it worked. Thanks for your wonderful words!
Lauren, how beautiful are your words here! I, too, have a profound sense of healing in the presence of nature. This is a subject that I hold near and dear to my heart for how nature inspires and influences what I write and how reassured I feel having been raised in the countryside and how much I quickly came to love all that nature has to give. So wonderful to see your words!

This is so touching Lauren. Nature has its own magic! And your poem expressed it so well, the warmth we can find when being out and looking at the beauty around us.
Thanks so much for your lovely words, Marie. Nature is magical, that is for sure. Love and hugs to you, my friend. ❤️
Hi Lauren, I suppose we all suffer times of loneliness and self doubt despite our circumstances or the people who surround us.
I believe loneliness can be felt for a variety of reasons, Robbie. But I wanted to add hope at the end of this poem, and that’s when Nature enters. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. 🌺
My pleasure. Nature does uplift us.
Such a beautiful wordplay ..love it

Aww, thanks so much, Jeff. I appreciate your wonderful comment and I’m glad this resonates with you, but I hope in a good way, not the lonely way. 🤗

Thanks for your kind words, Resa, and I’m glad we’re on the same page. 🙂 💗

If you consider that loneliness never makes you weak. That is really embraces you.
Loneliness can provoke weakness, which is why I used “chilling” to describe its embrace. Not warm like a best friend’s hug. 🙂
Thank you! 🥰
I felt peace after reading this piece .
I am a lover of nature.
I’m so glad the outcome was positive for you after reading this poem. Another lover of nature, that is wonderful. Nature finds herself in many of my poems. Thank you for the visit, too.
