Tranquility

It’s a bench with a view
Not far from home
A place I will come
To be on my own
For the view this offers
Is second to none
First thing in the morning
Or when day is done
It is peaceful and calming
And there just for me
It is a favourite bench
One of tranquility

    Nice poem Jem. Great photo too – looks very much like somewhere on the East Sussex coastline.

    Thanks – close on the location. It’s actually West Beach, Shoreham in West Sussex.

    I have a bench of tranquility of my own. Its not in a quiet place..rather close to an intersection in a small city…Its not even a bench…rather a pavement just some meters away from the intersection…but it is my own place of tranquility.

    I’d like to think that each of us have that place Kelechi. I’m really fortunate to live close to a beach but tranquility doesn’t need a view – just a state of mind.

    Jem, this is lovely. It reminds me of a single wicker chair I saw at the beach last night.
