Overcoming Sickness by DanielBrooksLaurent Overcoming Sickness by DanielBrooksLaurent
Overcoming Sickness

The Winter is a long stretch that is sure,
When imaginative ways seek a cure,
In search through bitter ills, will these steps last,
How much more pain will imprint must be asked,
Where wings taketh to roost, our needs remain -
Rooted with an old familiar strain,
The bane of a World close with hands so numb,
Thine heart shines a while before I succumb,
To eve's remarkable chill old bone's fade,
Enforcing rest leaning on dear Oak staid.

Those departing Doves captured my envy,
So free their options seemingly many,
Making silhouette suite of sunset sky,
Such composition perfects dreamy eye,
Overcoming sickness' abject gall,
In prompts, hitting anonymity's wall,
Slicing a secretive flush face down,
Breaking when there is no-one else around,
Illness holds firm grip keeping this tight ship,
Thence Nature tells our guard must never slip.

Steadfast bastion, all-embracing light,
Mighty and illustrious boughs recite,
What a past told so well and still holds true,
To value lands weaving emotive rue,
That opens a pathway to healing find,
Nature guides of a bygone kindred mind,
Those safe havens cherished wise and thoughtful,
Sanctify the unbounded present pull,
Remains in daily battle causing ail,
And yet Heaven doth help to tell this tale.
