What is this scent so sweet
the smell of freedom within
to reach out to nature
and recover feelings so deep

like the smell of a bear
who had his fill on the shore
leaving behind enough
for an eagle's talons to grasp

the beauty of depth of strength
so cool and so crisp to the touch
that it is like cool raindrops
caressing hot flesh

I open up to let it in
peaceful tranquility so fresh
wearing it like love's blanket
warm, safe and never alone

Sleep comes swiftly
like a whisper on the clouds
that wrap my arms around
dream my dream lover

Go with the wind
blowing not wildly
but straight into morning light
where my peace exists...
