Tranquility Today

Sun Drenched

Sun Drenched (Photo credit: Digimist)

This piece of poetic prose was written when I was in Italy, working at an English Summer camp for 2 weeks. I’d been having problems at home, going through a bit of a bad patch… In Italy, all those problems drifted away in the sun, the peace, the beautiful feel of where I was. Sitting outdoors on the patio, a glass of wine in hand, looking out a beautiful vista, with no cares in the world, I took pen in hand and wrote exactly how I felt at that moment:

Sweet Sun, blessed tranquillity here I am at last in total liberty no stresses no strains nothing heading towards the insane at last the peace for long I needed, Body Mind and Soul completed, unified, as a whole no longer the panic of the drowned man’s toll- but it comes! Oh it comes! I cannot yet think of that time so I shy away just relax and drink and enjoy, take in the bliss that currently swims through me around me over and in me- not waiting for the day when this will be behind me just enjoying the now, laughing and working and living so calm so chilled So Right Now – Dread the day I must must fly away and back to that manic trap that clouds me and binds me that will send me mad I am sure, sure my only escape will be to have the courage to off and take my life elsewhere – new not known but have I that strength to go it alone? So torn undriven panic sets in but that’s for another day another thinking not now not now please not again keep calm keep in the moment hold it tight – experience this living full, unmarred by emotions and stress because for now I have forgiven: myself, all my wrongs all my hurt and all my undones. This I hope to take with me on my return – But I can already hear my Lamenting Song.
