Meditation by Debra McLain


A long day lies behind me.

My spirit holds onto hope,

grasping for a life raft

in an ocean of chaos.


My soul yearns for serenity.

Knowing there is peace,

hiding in the valleys

of my mind.


The angels surround me.

Enveloping me in wings;

protecting me

from forces unseen.


Breathing in deeply,

my lungs inhale


on a warm summer day.


A waterfall flows beside me;

washing away

the dirty soil

of an overused mind.


Sunlight shines brightly,

creating a spark

of energy

reigniting the flames of hope.


Love enters my body.

Pink rays dancing

and swaying to music

only I can hear.

My soul is set free.

Life is but a canvas,

the paintbrush

is in my mind.
