Under the branches of the tall trees that hide parts of the sky ,

where the tiniest of hatchlings flap their wings and try to fly

and Life miraculously blooms in the intriguing woods around ,

with exotic plants and beautiful creatures of all kinds abound

To blissfully wander away in these woods for an endless hour ,

and wreathe an eternal string of words in the laps of a bower

to follow the warm sunshine through the canopies above ,

that map a trail to a secret lair that of magic and that of love

My Soul sings when the leaves rustle along with the breeze ,

and dances when the lovely flowers waltz with the many bees

I wonder to myself that maybe this is what is called Peace ,

when my heart no longer yearns and my mind is finally at ease.
