“The Concept of Personal Space” – Muntinlupa, 07 June 2015

night falls:

i seek

my bed,

my sanctuary,

my confessional;

silent

shock absorber

for trials

and tribulations

caused by

one transgression

or another

in the

waking world.

 

i breathe

deep:

lavender…

bergamot…

neroli –

confluence of

scents

to soothe

a weary

body,

to lull

an overtaxed

mind.

 

sinking deep

into sweet

slumber

and thinking

and hoping

for new

beginnings

come the

breaking dawn.
