peaceful moment

peaceful moment 

Like a warm day on the beach, all woozy from the sunshine 
Feeling the tingle of sea breeze and that ocean scent of the wild 
As the sun diminishes, cooling, refreshing, yet still a lazy summer eve 
Oh that luscious feeling, that overflow of quiet emotion 
Seeping out of a sleepy reverie, washing so gently through pores and follicles 
Like a sweet warm breath caressing 

We give what we can; we take what we need 
Marching, in orderly fashion 
Or beatifically walking to a sacred beat. 
The horizon shifts through daily duties and nightly prayers. 
We take what we can. We give. 
Without notice, without rational equation 
We give each outward breath, and take in what is given.

Like a happy, inspiring song springing from memory to lip 
Moving the fortunate mind into momentary ecstasy of dance 
Moments meant to linger, to haunt as a loving ghostly guardian 
Wrapped in that ethereal glow of grace's perfection 
Summoning iridescent spirits to play joyful ubiquitous harmonies 
Like the words we tell ourselves to bring us peace.
