Looking for Tranquility monday poetry potluck #20-Peace, Relaxation and Spirituality

Searching for the holy grail or a
hammock that shades the mind.
Swaying palms that cover the coast
where waves brush against a shoreline.
Looking for what feels right,
beliefs are arbitrary,
indecision couples whimsy.
Searching for peace or repose
a tree that shelters from the rain,
wild flowers grow on hillsides
where grass grows in tufts.
Facing an identity that sets us
apart from the ordinary,
convictions are solid,
decisiveness fortifies.
Relaxation exudes peace helping
to discover one’s own spirituality.

  5. Victoria, it is the only place for me.
    Exterior comforts are great, but if you feel
    emptiness inside it doesn't matter.

  14. Wiki says: spirituality is defined as a search within oneself
    Michael asks: To what end?

    Purely rhetorical.

    Your idea of a safe haven first appeals to me.
    Nice Write.

  15. I didn't know wiki said that:) We are flawed beings and must search for what feels right. While still taking care with our fellow man.
    Religion and politics are such delicate subjects,
    but spirituality is something most people embrace.
    Thanks for the nice comment.
