A Much Needed Break

I need a break today
From CNN headlines,
Reality TV,
Local news,
Bejeweled Blitz;
Everything man

My recent dreams
Come from my past;
Time spent on the
Pacific Ocean,
A time when life was wild.

Winds blew.
Wildfires wreaked havoc.
Earthquakes threatened.

But it was never personal
Because it was the way of
Nature, not man.

I need the peace of knowing
Life is not in our hands.


  1. What a beautiful part of the world. I know what you mean about needing a break from the headlines - I try not to watch the news - it is just so depressing. We had bad bush fires in Australia last summer - they did wreak havoc and many died - it is nice to see the rain now. Life is the way it is meant to be - bush fires destroy so much - but then a little bit of grass starts to grow again - death and new beginnings - its all part of life :)

  2. A world where man-made things don't exist.....that's pause for thought. Great song with this!

  3. i would love to be sitting there enjoying the view. amazing!

  4. Dear Jeanne, I know what you mean, I never ever watch the news or read papers. All the bad news that's going on in the world makes me so sad.

    Good for you to send out this picture. Let the wind blow all your sorrows away my friend.
    Love Enya with this post. It heals my soul a bit.
