When your body is numb

from sensations

and your heart is hardened,

and your skin is thickened

and your soul is unreachable in depths

of exhaustion,

look up for a second – 

breathe the earthy pine air, 

feel the breeze 

gentle, like a friend,

like she’s trying to soothe your nerves

like she’s telling you to slow down,

like she’s reminding you 

of who you are.
