Please Rescue Me

Poetry By: PaulChafer

Getting in touch with the soul, appreciating the beauty surrounding us, ignored by many, abused by others; a natural beauty seen, sensed and touched by the lucky few who have learned how to feel with an assimilation of their hearts and minds. Why the call to be rescued? Some days, and it happens to us all, we have a dread of being trapped, stuck in a rut and we can acquire, in a fleeting rush, a yearning to be free, to seek change. It passes, of course and our soul/spirit returns to earth and our humdrum lives. But such moments are for what we live and breathe: sometimes, but only, sometimes.

A sliver of sun through

Early morning haze,

Heralding the promise

Of long cloudless days:

Please rescue me.

Fresh meadow scent on

A soft soughing breeze;

Chirrup of a song thrush

Hidden amongst the trees:

Rescue me.

The gentle hovering of

A noisome honeybee,

Searching out pollen

On a dancing petal sea:

Rescue me.

Trill of childish laughter

Echoing from the park,

Competing for attention

With a soaring sky~lark:

Rescue me.

A beautiful woman in

A cotton print dress;

Her leisurely gait enticing

Beneath the fabrics car~ess:

Rescue me.

The red sinking giant

Painting clouds in the sky,

Just another lost day

Lying down to die:

Please, please: rescue me.
