Away is a Place

“”Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you…while cares will drop off like autumn leaves….” —John Muir

Away is a Place

Away is a place I am longing to go.
It does not matter where.
Maybe the sun will shine all day
or rain might cloud the air.

There might be ocean waves to soundocean-sunrise_19-135786
a roar upon the shore,
or red rocks rising up to blue
creating memories to store.

Within a restless, rampant mind
that traps such fear inside,
along with loneliness and doubt,
there’d be nothing to decide.

No illness to watch, no end that’s near,grand-canyon-sedona-courtesy
no loss or grief or pain,
just blazing sun and spirit rocks
and the rhythm of the rain.

Away is where I need to go,
away from all I see,
and maybe there I’d find at last
the one who could be me.
