Rejuvenated (Press)

And I lie there
under the gray sky
with a calm life that seems to quietly walk inside it.
And the silence,
the still presence,
allows me to hear things miles away.
The soft, moist grass provides a comfort
not found anywhere else.
I feel replenished
by the silence of the world
as though from this lifelessness
I am rejuvenated.

My eyes can rest in the tranquil gray lighting.
That beautiful unique smell
which comes only from the water in the sky,
fills and clears my nostrils.

And I lie there
as soft drops of rain dance their way onto my body.

Nice to see I'm not the only midnight poster! I love this poem. It really captures the feeling well, and I can see myself lying underneath that sky. The language is awesome! You're a great poet. ~Pinkroses
