My Little Space of Peace

Foil and fairy lights

Flowers and plants abound

Warmth of wood and embers

My room loves the abundance


Light for all the darkness

From faint twinkling to a flashy glow

Pouring from the sides to the floor

My heart wants to adore


Many stages of my wandering life

Are covered, framed and hung

Adorning relics of a forgotten age

Line the mantle and placed on the wall


Gentle murmurs and the hum of machines

Don’t drown out the sounds of earth

Reclaiming and in loving rebirth

I nurture this space, nurturing me in return
