When I am weary, weak and muddle-headed,
I seek IT.
When fear grips me and pulls me down,
I discover IT.
When tears, troubles, and worries will not abide
I crave IT.
And when inspiration is not found,
I encounter IT….
Here in my sanctuary,
As near as my soul’s own light.

This poem was a challenge for me to identify my sanctuary. Where do I find my refuge, retreat and safe harbor? While nature and my garden are my go to spots for a sanctuary and wildlife can bring me great solace, my greatest sanctuary is what I find within me.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
Special Note: Phlox symbolizes unanimity or harmony, unity, accord.
I leave you with a bit of a sentiment about finding your sanctuary. Feel free to download the photo and share.
