Listen to your heart’s needs

Something is in the air
a taste of old and new
a touch of hope
a light of fresh
brought by the shorter days
where I feel drawn
to cozy down
into my nest
to contemplate
this year’s treasures
and when I awake
the days will grow brighter
but for now,
they dwindle with ease
and I’m okay
to close my eyes and listen
to my heart’s truest needs.

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
