like a soft shroud
made from the softest
and whitest, baby cloud

They hang low over rolling green hills
ensuring a beautiful silence so deep

to natures beauty that surrounds me

My tired body and mind revive
While I meditate silently in joy...

And then I hear them

till even the trees bow their branches
in a holy reverence
The bees and butterflies sing
with soft temperance

No sense of time,
peace sublime,
I feel cleansed and pure
of His presence so sure
In unison with a divine energy
that pervades my entire body
loth to open my eyes
with pure joy I realise
the joy and serenity of
