tranquility





over my mind a thick mist hangs
dulling all the senses
mirroring clouds hanging above
over invisible fences
thoughts move drowsily
through a veil
of silence
which i inhale
limbs in repose
emotions tame
tranquility
lays its claim

  3. Thick mist, drowsy fog, yep. That sounds like me this morning. I think I'll choose to view it as tranquility rather than exhaustion. Seems so much nicer that way.

    Nice one Shadow.

  5. I love the traquility of sitting in the field with my dogs on a spring evening like last night watching the trains in the valley below, sooo serene.
    Yes after my mid life crisis at 40 I am getting back into blogging and feel better for it.
    Your place made the news on UK TV about the election and all that, I would love to travel round africa, Louise (Miss Bickerdyke) who is in the next office said I really should get out and explore the world

  6. Tranquility lays it claim through this. A respite of a poem. I need to memorize this. Wonderful work, Shadow.

  8. Ah, it's been years since I've had a moment like this. I yearn for it. Kinda was yearning for it in my float poem today.

    Nice

    thick, yet thin.

  15. Gol-dang-it! Oddest thing. I mean the coincidence.

    Coming home from a meeting this morning I ran into thick veils of actual smoke, and I LOVE the smell! It is "fire season" here. And it was eerie as you describe in today's poem of peacefulness:

    "...through a veil
    of silence
    which i inhale..."

    Simply beautifully written, as (ahhhhhhh!) usual.
