Sanity

Give me a calm view upon an open window

Or stretches of landscape that lead my eye

Towards the soothing sight of

Sunlight dancing on water

The vibrant blue

Of early morning autumn sky

Allow my heart this

A timely release

A glimpse of peace

Freedom from the ongoing

Human cacophany

For this man made world is so often

A discordant thing

Full of heartache and misunderstanding

And a thousand other ways

Of breeding suffering

And today my soul most longs

To sing a song instead

Of ease and freedom

Lately I have growing so weary

Of the mixed up human design

That seems so unkind

To our deeper needs and feelings

And today I feel so strongly

A need to be free

So often at odds with nature

I must return to the silence

For the sake

Of my soul’s sanity
