Time Out

The Elements1ab

My Raison d’être – photo by Wild Thing

Politicians arguing
Bills to pay
Time out needed 

Grabbing camera
Out the door
Tires squealing
Music loud 

Nature beckons
Rock … river … field
Wildlife scamper
Tall ancient trees 

Universal energy
Flowing from them
Soothing to the soul
Inner peace found 

In solitude hearing
Ancient voices
Telling stories of
Hardship … survival 

Earth giving strength
Through bare feet
Soft breeze
Stimulating thought 

Fire of the sun
Providing natural energy
Calm flow of water
Stilling ruffled emotions 

At day’s end
Center balanced
Returning home
Time out over
