Sacred Space

 By Becky Van Leeuwen

Sustenance; the breeze
Raindrops through trees
Wind in curly hair
Sun in the deck chair

Words for a wandering soul
Waves that auspiciously roll
With a quaint reminder
Of what is now behind her

These memories could be
Her sacred space
Her one and only
Clearing place

Do you like living
In that ever kind
Sacred dreamtime
Of your mind?
