Relief From the Cacophony

colorado park river

A gentle stillness in the air

away from the cacophony of the city

my spirits rising as

happy thoughts replace those of pity


The gentle flowing stream

slowly rippling through the air

a calming nature’s song

with a nurturing flair


Hearing cicadas now

chirping songs of old

having a final concert

before the air turns cold


Spotting a deer

not so far away

standing in natural beauty

giving its tail a sway


Peaceful now

absorbing the calmness within

feeling the comforts

of a small cool wind


Meditation over

picking up a fall leaf

understanding all that is wonderful

if we choose to believe
