Embowered (2016 April PAD - Day 9)

Embowered





This towering

arboreal bower

tenders refuge,

breathes a peaceful blessing,

descants sacred truths and

whispers musical murmurings

when breezes riffle through. 



This secret haven,

(retreat of leaves)

offers sanctuary –

 a serene enduring lee

buffering me

from any and all

ill winds.



Though my duties

beg attendance

and my burdens

bid me leave,

still I’ll bide

a wee bit longer

and breathe.
