Finding peace ... (Form: RemyLa Rhyme Form) A River of Poetry Entry
Hush. Silence sings a song of peace
as nature's soft hands paint a verdant scene.
I stand in this moment, frozen in time and place,
granting my busy thoughts surcease.
Surcease from cares that plague each day;
the upheaval of a life in motion
that inebriates the mind with random noises
while the soul slowly fades away ...
Away from the human essence
of self; toward the robotic routine
of existence where triviality matters -
toward dark, not luminescence.
Luminescence, like a soft blush,
reveals our surroundings through our heart's glow,
illuminating that we are more than ourselves.
Discovered in solitude ... Hush.
