Only a Moment

Don’t give up

for sometimes,

on a blue hammock under green trees

under a warm blanket of bird tweets

owl hoots

and cricket chirps,

I can touch peace

ever so lightly –

with just my finger tips.

Please be brave

because occasionally,

in a calm bath

listening to slow piano

under red lights

I can feel serenity,

she is weightless

soundless –

kind to me.

Reflect in that possibility

the eternal chance

to touch a peace

feel a serenity

and be truly


empty –

If only for a moment.
