There’s a time to come apart
from tangled branches
bearing webs woven too tightly.
To retreat from crowded concrete
and crushing cacophony ‘s
Walk where healing waters lick your toes
as eddies chase around your ankles
and sweet air cleanses ruffled feathers.
Listen to waves brushing silky sand
with diamond sprinkled sea-foam
in ageless cadence.
Receive from the breeze the Father’s love
as his Genesis-glory envelops
and calms your weary soul.
Linger there awhile
until your burden melts away
with the evening tide.
and bundle it as a heart-treasure
before you return.
