The Journey Within

~ Heart's Oasis ~
.
In the depth of my being,
Feelings and memories
Intertwine.
Not like twisted rope,
But freeing...
More like fence and vine.
.
Gentle whispers
That remind me
Of a journey so long
I sit quietly,
Transfixed by their song.
.
Companion breezes
That renew me,
Stirring the meadow...
Wandering on a whim.
I'm called to rest
In my heart's tree,
A bird perched on a limb.
.
I softly inhale
From the leaves of remembrance
All the things that were,
All the things that stir
Every blade of my being.
.
This tree of respite
Is my heart's oasis...
Knowing without seeing,
Growing with delicate graces,
Spurring simultaneous flights
To my most distant places.
.
Such a voyage within
Is recharging,
Even when the air gets thin.
Soaring in the song
Of solitude,
Find your heart's oasis
And bask in everywhere,
Everywhen you've been.
