Habitual Tool

The road to calmness,

The first spring flower,

The dragonflies

Dancing beneath the blue

Of the sky.

One touch of the clay

To paint faces;

A child’s freedom in a play.

No broken smiles.

The tough caricature

Setting its foot on the sand.

I can wave at the sky

Embrace the mountains

And sleep on the dewy grass

To find myself again and again. 

The chaos doesn’t have a face.

Words set me free

I lose not a cost of being alive.

Way down my intentions are meant

Not to hurt.

Poetry a habitual tool.
