Haven – Poem

Haven – Poem
A poem by one of our readers, Rachael Keenan. Are you a Budding Poet? Have your poem published in MiNDFOOD magazine too.

 

Summer dances on the water,

She lies languorous and long,

Seeing a horizon of possibility

She breathes calm and strong.

 

Her breath slows time

she inhales sea spray air

incessant mind chatter abates

she pauses and stares

 

Witnessing the glory of nature’s beauty

born of sand sea and light

her face beams radiant

at shouts of childish delight

 

Life’s priority now aligns

with the falling of the sun

No longer does she suffer

to contort what might become.

 

She lives within that moment

rising from her sandy bed

gently reaching out,

to wake her sleepyhead

 

She draws her child to her

and nestles in his grace

arms and legs entangled

her heart rests in his embrace.
