The girl on the swing

A girl sits on a swing 

cats comfortably calling to the moon 

they merrily purr into the sky

singing soothing sounds of serenity

with the moon standing like a resting river 

in a simple sky of perfect peace 

and branches like an umbrella comforting the girl 


she is grateful 

she is safe 

cats purring by her side 

together as one

its as if 

all is one and the same 

In this moment in time 

the cats , the girl and the swing , the tree 

the moon merrily sitting 

al is one and the same 

in this moment in time 


a peaceful place where all is still 

and the girl silently sings within her mind 

tender thoughts talking to the moon 

and the moon ,a silver crescent shining light lovingly 

whilst the sky smiles at all that is 

and the contentment of the graceful girl on the peaceful swing

    To sit peacefully, with or without purring cats, beneath a moonlit sky can be a great leveller.
    For me, I am reminded how insignificant my life and all it's troubles and worries are when placed before the wonders of the universe and I am refreshed.

    Lockdown/shielding has kept me away from the places where i seek solace and let my soul communicate with creation and seek 'placement'. I am 'over-ready' (lol) to get out there.

    Is that your spirit upon the swing with two buddies?
