Escape to our Refuge

Updated on May 8, 2016
Nature's beauty...home of the wild...
Nature's beauty...home of the wild...


When our lives become too strained, well beyond our controls,

In escaping to our sanctuaries, we find freedom for our souls.

Be it a simple hobby, painting pictures, or working in the garden,

Our minds take flight, leaving troubles behind, to find our pardon.


As the world turns around each day, revolving about our Father sun,

Each spirit goes about its common tasks until all the work is done.

With our Mother Earth, our own fine home, a solace here is found,

Amid sun-bathed meadows, leafy woods, nature's beauty abounds.


The unhappy notes within our songs may change with every mood,

A beautiful composition awaits us, happily adjusted in each prelude.

With emboldened strokes, to paint our own portraits, every masterpiece,

Revealed before the world and seen, as every attempt's embraced.


The potter's wheel so spins in turn, as hands fashion each presentation,

Crafted reflections of that held within, to be placed in rows, a procession.

Painted in colors of intricate designs, baked in ovens of highest degrees,

All a creation of greatest magnitude, so alike ourselves, each perceives.


We seek quiet solitude, there, sunny mornings and the wild geese do fly,

Those moon brightened nights, the only sound, as a whippoorwill to cry.

Escaping wrath of an unkind day or what seems failure, to our troubled minds,

There in the quietness true solitude does portray, we find a truth that binds.

Every creature seeks shelter and peace of mind...

      Perfect. It's almost as if you wrote this for me, but perhaps you did.

      Poetically and artistically wonderful. I prefer escaping into some fantasy with my favorite music.

      Very touching piece of art, I like it really much! And the pictures as well!

      I used to read it while listening to some music like this:

      Seems a little bit starnge as a male, which I am, but sometimes you just need something like this :D

      Again, great work on this one!

      Very nice. At a time I thought that refuges and escapes were all about running away from reality. Now I see them as necessary nutrients for the soul.
