My Healing Place

I am very late joining the party at Real Toads for the Saturday challenge of writing about a place we love, a place that heals us.  Obviously, that is my pasture.  I’m also joining d’Verse Poets where the challenge is to write a quadrille (44 word poem) using some form of the word spoil.

My thinking rock being used by the goats.

nature’s beauty
surrounds me–
the birds’ song
accompanied
by the wind
whipping through trees;
tall grass reaches
up tickling my ankles
as I sit on my granite
thinking rock.
Peace comes to me
in this happy place,
where healing happens
unspoiled by
man’s progress.

  1. Teresa, I got relaxed just reading your pretty poem. Sometimes I sit on rocks along our walking paths. I know three perfect ones under a tree. I can’t count sheep because I don’t ever see any to count, I might not be able to think either.

  2. Ah….everyone should have a thinking rock — in the midst of unspoiled nature. 🙂 Perhaps that’s why I enjoy going to Provincetown and being by the ocean so much. I do love city life in Boston…but those unspoiled places…I do miss those!
