Underneath the magnificent canopy,
the wind blowing ever so softly,
skies painted ever so beautifully,
sun dying ever so warmly.
She sat, gazing at the beauty around,
content with everything here.
Entranced by nature’s splendor,
shoulders light and bright.
Past troubles and tensions forgotten,
stress leaving her body.
No more dwelling for future anxieties,
what-ifs or could-have-beens.
As darkness grew throughout,
she got up, ready to leave.
To not return to this wonderland,
until she’d bested herself.
A new place, a new beginning,
no expectations thrust upon.
She’d build herself from the ground,
and return here once more.
