Open-air Hospital

Homecoming of the soul
In the great outdoors
Journey to Mother Nature
All the panacea I need
For she is my medication
To that which ails me
My peace in her music
The song of the birds
Gush of the rivers
Sway of tall pine trees
The recharge of my batteries
Barefooted on her green lawn
The sun dabbles on my cheeks
Though gentle and far
Vitamin D infusing
Anti-depressant injection
A welcoming hostess
Nurse providing care
And all I need do
Is open my door
Venture to hers
Visit the forests and plains
Savanah and mountains
Lay hands to the bark
Fingers to the ground
And absorb

    1. Yes, the lack of sunlight doesn’t help with the already struggling anxiety and depression that people are feeling from being isolated, especially those living alone. I hope that people can find some sunshine and healing soon.
      Thanks for stopping by John. Hope that you are keeping well.
