From the humdrum of life
Is the land we hold sacrosanct
The land of tranquility
Where melodies of nature calm
Reflections gather and glimmer
Dreams bounce with joy
Mother Nature’s sanity speaks
Exquisite moments hold
Positive vibes of life
Connections seem eternal
Ah… the solace solitude brings!
Tranquility we yearn for
In the whirlwind called life
Both the journeys
Come with a price.

Few can embrace solitude completely enough to learn from it fully… few embrace life fully enough to learn all it has to offer. Beautiful, Balroop.
Thanks Sue, Mother Nature may be mute while communicating but her messages are profound and eternal. 😊
They are…if we take time to listen 🙂
And you listen as well as record her nuances so well!
I try 🙂
Beautiful Balroop, Mother Nature always holds us, connecting us to the solace of that tranquil moment of her silent breath.. Loved your poem and the image just perfection.. ❤

Thank you so much Dorinda ♥️
You’re very welcome.
I love spending time away from the city in the outdoors..at times for a few hours and when I’m lucky, a few days. When I’m away in the hills, the connection with the nature is real because we are no longer insulated from the weather conditions. It is then that you can think like our ancestors who lived life in tandem with nature trying to insulate from the cold, sun, and rain.
Lovely poem, Balroop. 🙂
Thanks Joe. 🙂

Dreams bounce with joy”

I love,love, love Balroop.
Your poem is full of serenity, peace and light.
Thank you Marie. I am delighted to hear that serenity is reaching you through my words. 💕
Love it, especially the last stanza. From my experience, we earn peace in solitude as we are able to embrace it. Aloha 🌺😘
Well said Bela. Solitude is blissful if we learn to love it. 😊♥️
This may be my favorite poem of yours yet, Balroop – and that’s saying a lot because I love getting enfolded into your poems. But serenity and solitude are blissful and so well expressed here.
Thanks Pam. If the serenity of this poem is blissful then you must check the one I have shared today. 🤗
Your words have made the beauty of the place come alive Balroop. Always a fan of your poetry!!
Thank you so much dear Radhika, I am delighted to hear that. 🤗
Balroop, wow! A beautiful poem which left me with a cascade of tranquility and calm washing over me. How true our busy lives interrupt the important, silent conversations with Nature, where we truly have a chance of being ourselves and at peace., where ‘our dreams bounce with joy’. Your poem reminded me a long walk in the forest in Sweden, a sublime stillness, extraordinary array of clouds at dusk … I felt giddy with clarity and peace … such moments of ‘epiphany’ are rare indeed! hugs xx
Many thanks for your lovely words dear Annika, they are no less than the experience you have related. 😊♥️
Thank you dear. 🙂
I really love the tranquil visuals with the words. It really lived up to the title. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for standing by to share your words, much appreciated. Most of my poems are calming. 🙂
