Sanctuary (Original)

 Lately, I’ve been quite impressed with nature. So I wrote this short poem, inspired.
 

 

Sanctuary
I feel the Earth

beneath my feet

My forest fortress

Temple of leaves

It grounds the gypsy soul in me

Earth is powerful, magical, ancient and… we take it for granted.

 

Lately, I’m being drawn to Earth more and more. I’ve always been a spiritual person, but l never thought much about Mother Nature. I’ve been brought up trusting science when it comes to things like mental/physical health, with my mother being a nurse. So the importance of nature was not abundantly obvious to me.

 

However, I’ve done a lot of growing these past few years (I couldn’t resist that pun!) and I’ve really started to find myself. Earth has healed me. It eases my stress and soothes my mind. All I have to do is take a walk or reconnect with nature somehow.It’s so easy to forget all about the natural world when we live in an artificial society, consumed by technology. The amount of time spent in front of screens just isn’t healthy. I know if I sit a few hours binge watching a series on Netflix, I feel like shit. I’ll suffer with headaches and a 100% decrease in motivation.

Whereas if I spend even a short amount of time outdoors, I’ll experience the opposite- Happiness.

Just take five minutes of fresh air to ground yourselves. Appreciate this beautiful planet and learn that it does not belong to man. Man belongs to the Earth.

Thanks for reading,

Kathryn

  1. This is so true. I am a student of environmental studies and I couldn’t agree more with you. :) People should spend some time outdoors and cherish, what is important – our planet. :)

  2. Love the poem, it’s short and sweet and I feel that the name ‘sanctuary’ is perfect for it! Nature is so precious and a natural healer, I love how you’ve portrayed that. Your writing is so poetic and calming (if that makes sense aha!) Just followed you, hope you’re having a wonderful day!!
