Breathe Deep, Seek Peace

Learning and fresh knowledge are essential.

18/01/2021

The tree of wisdom beckons

To all who would heed its call

The ancient power of nature

Breathing life into

Our weary souls

Let this fresh knowledge

These new synapses firing

Be a rapturous discovery

Of the healing power

Contained within

The oceans, rivers and forests

As the waves wash away

The pain and longing

And the wind in the trees

Whispers sweet nothings

To nurture peace within

Our tired thoughts

With time

We could spiral upwards

With content and meaningful

Thoughts, words, actions

Gliding

Surfing

Floating

On the beauty

Found only on planet earth

This blessed world

With all its angels and devils

Has all we need to find

Heaven within ourselves

You just need to know

Where to look

Start with the tree of wisdom

Drink deeply from the springs of knowledge

And never, ever, ever give up



Lately I’ve been looking for artwork to use as inspiration for new work. I came across this lovely drawing from an artist named Jo Fox and wrote a new poem inspired by it.

You can check out her work here:

And the story of the piece here:

I believe that learning and fresh knowledge are essential to a life well lived.
