Mother Nature’s Balm

Sometimes when the soul

is hit with too many

things at once

it dives into distress

frozen, unable to focus

the stirring inside

disrupts the flow of peace

can’t find the words to pray

tears will not release

it is then the only source of 

comfort can be found

in the healing balm of 

Mother Nature

Madness of nation’s darkness

moments of light

few and far between

soul’s embitterment

taste intolerable

attempting to recall

memories of sweet

failure brings surrender

powerlessness cloaks eyes

exhale…inhale…

smell transition’s aroma

just as nature’s 

change of season

a promise to trust

good shall rise up and

shine like Autumn’s brilliance

laying to rest 

death’s shadows

upon humanity.
