Still Beauty to be Found, a poem



I stand at water’s edge


for the welcoming sounds

of nature

the open-arm embrace

of vibrant sun

the unforgettable smell

of fertile earth and fir

It stirs within me

feelings of hope

feelings of home

and a song beneath my chest

starts to hum its melodic tune.

This is how I revive

I am reborn

each moment

I learn to stand still

to listen

to celebrate the waves

the sunsets

the cloudy skies

and the very earth

beneath my feet.

Away from the madness

of the world,

I am reassured

there is still beauty

to be found

in me

in others

and in the gifts

so often overlooked.



this is life’s lesson

in every aching inch

that goes unnoticed.
