Spa Journey

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 2:22 pm

Closing my eyes
not exactly sure
what to expect
it begins and
I am transported
to an island
somewhere
known only to
the heart beating
and the soul burning
inside me.

As I lay very still
on my back
supported by the soft
sand below me
contently listening to the sea
just behind me
my head and my shoulders
then my arms
then my legs
then my feet
are cleansed by the waters
of the shallow tide
moving its way
about me.

Turning then
upon my belly
I am transported
to a mountain top
as the coolest
yet calmest
of breezes
caresses my
back
settling the stresses
within my spine.

I sit up
taking in the breezes
on all sides
as I breathe slowly
hearing a distant
native flute
now thankful for
having experienced
such a deep
beautiful touch.

~Miguel
