What I do when life gets me down.

Hidden from the light of day

I step upon a path of clay

Laced with leaves of foliage in decay


Amid the silence all around

Calmness falls without a sound

As I walk upon the virgin ground


Rays of sunlight filter through

Limbs and boughs that touch the blue

And glisten on the crystal drops of dew


Scents of maple mixed with pine

There upon the air I find

Nothing of my troubles left behind


I wander on a path of peace

Endlessly until I reach

A cliff that hangs above a sandy beach


Silence broken by the roar

Of waves that rumble to the shore

Where above a solitary eagle soars


There upon the cliff I find

Total peace within my mind

In a world of wonder...lost in time
