In the Depths of My Being

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.


I walk down a dirt road listening to the wind. It is slightly breezy and gently warm. The sky is overcast. Wandering to a grassy field, I lay my body down. The coolness of the ground sends a slight shiver through me.

I think of the warmth a loving hug gives and find loving serenity. In the deep reaches of my mind I float away into space among the stars. Darkness envelops me as the stars shine brightly.

I feel light like a feather. As I come back to Mother Earth I swallow her into the depths of my being. Her essence surrounds me, caressing me with everlasting peace and contentment. I open my heart, mind and soul to whatever she offers me. She permeates my being with hers as we become one.
