A Balm




Surrounding myself with beauty
Soothes my soul,
Be it a bird's feather,
The delicate spiral of a shell
Or
A satellite of tight buds,
Lace-like.

Surrounding myself with beauty
Soothes my soul,
A balm for dark times.

(Slice of Life Day 27-Hosted by The Two Writing Teachers)

"balm" is such a clever and soothing title. You descriptions help me create detailed visualizations of a shell's spiral and the satellite of spring bugs. peaceful

This is such a lovely poem. It is a balm in itself.

It has been a mighty might long winter in these parts. It may be that winter has loosened its' grip on us. Even mud is a lovely sight! Thank you all for your kind words.
