In nature's arms...

Photo taken from here

Can I sleep here
in this quiet bower
listen to your breeze
sing a lovely tune?
so tired of electronic hums
screaming in my ears...

Can I breathe here
in this peaceful dream
float awhile
 in your smiling waters?
so tired of reality
crushing me beneath tears...

Can I live here
in this breathtaking green
become just
 a blade of grass you sheath?
so tired of love's burden
caging me with my fears...

I  just need
 a moment with you
can you take my tears
in your bubbling brook?
I need just a place to cry,
a place where
 I can close my eyes
and dream of sweet nothings.
and escape from myself
to become a part of you..

    Nature is such, always peace and calm infusing and a minute in its lap takes all the worries away!
