There is a welcome soft sadness

One that tastes of joy and loss

Peaceful contemplation inviting

A road few can find, or cross

It wells from deep within the heart

Spreading; it opens to peace

A lonely openness expanding

In which fear and pettiness cease

And I am lost

A feather borne

Aloft wisps of emotion

Into the day reborn
