Sanctuary

Truedessa's Collection















Build me a sanctuary with no walls
communing under a canopy of trees
harmony found where nature calls

here the mystic water rises and falls
ancient prophets whisper in a breeze
build me a sanctuary with no walls

open space no dark corridors or halls
river of life flowing towards the sea
harmony found where nature calls

between blades of grass time crawls
opening doorways with a master key
build be a sanctuary with no walls

blue skies calming inner squalls
healing wounds that haunt thee
harmony found where nature calls

precious memories, the heart recalls
amidst tall white birch, feeling free
build me a sanctuary with no walls
harmony found where nature calls

  4. Your theme puts me in mind of Yeats' I shall arise and go now. There is much tranquility to be found in the natural way of life.
