In My Serenity
In my serenity I retreat from the day.
Travelling in my mind;
Imagination shows the way.
Above my head, a brilliant shower of light.
The evening silence shines;
A panorama of color announces night.
At the horizon the sun sinks towards its bed.
The sky above a canvas;
Painting the clouds in pink and red.
Evening gives way, as does my listlessness.
Sky blue becomes black;
Points of light pear out of the darkness.
The solitude of night is a companion to my soul.
My thoughts and emotions become whole.
Above the expanses of the universe unfolds.
So does my mind;
Lost thoughts and unused emotions it holds.
Stored away unneeded, I am forced to face.
Bright points of light;
Emotions separated by the emptiness of space.
The cool night wind caresses me as it curls around.
High among the stars;
My mind wanders while my feet touch the ground.
In my serenity I retreat into the night.
Traveling alone in the dark;
I wonder again if ever there will be light.
