Listen while you read the poem
Free Peace Silence
in cozy bed
green and blue
with the One
confines of body
I am by myself
I am not alone

At Poets United, Kim Nelson wanted poems about freedom. Then she asked us to pare them down to the essentials. A wonderful exercise in excising the extras, Kim, so thanks! Also at my poetic lily pad, Imaginary Garden With Real Toads. Peace, Amy

Peace and freedom, so much to be expected. Sadly they are so elusive. Not that they are not achievable. But politics make them rare elements! Nicely Amelita!

Beautiful music and words…I must learn to meditate.

That was soothing, you gave peace to mind, the concept of reading while listening to the music on blog was innovative one… I will also try this on my blog.
The last line touched me immensely, I am by myself but not alone, profound words of wisdom.

Amy, I love spare words–that is an excellent exercise! And your poem is like a meditation–lovely 🙂
