​Beneath the boughs of woodland trees,
the canopy of broad green leaves,
listening to the susurrus wind,
calms the dissonance and begins
to put the spirit at its ease.

The universe comforts with these
as it somnolently relieves.
Vibrations resonate within
beneath the boughs.

Enraptured by the soft reprise,
of soulful music that does tease,
a part reluctant to give in
to the flow of natural hymns,
unlocking peace with inner keys
beneath the boughs.
