A soul reborn

In this flawless, placid lake of healing

I come to take a bath,

as the bright canvas of blue above me,

Whisper a symphony of silence.

The calm blue lake, a moving mirror,

like a sacred vision,

invites me within its quiet stream,

crystal and pure, in its depths,

I’m like a soul reborn.

In the hidden energy of the limpid water

My broken spirit rejoices with me.

    Water is the physical source of life and a great resource for healing . This short poem is a rhapsody on the therapeutic and restorative powers of unsullied Nature in general and water in particular , in a real as well as in a metaphoric sense .
