Lullaby

puppy child
A plastic amber
Veil of tranquillity
Envelopes me in
It’s euphoric shroud
Of transient joy.
Dopamine dreams
Mask shadows
Of your longing
That once kept me
Awake at night.

Ruth B.’s lovely voice is comforting on this simple song about where we find our salvation. It’s a beautiful modern day lullaby.

  2. Thank you Mia! When I write, I usually start with an idea, write, re-write and then find a picture to go along with it. In this case I found the picture first and it spoke to me. I have been researching the ways we can naturally increase our dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin levels. It turns out that sunshine, laughter and hugs, the things we do so naturally as children, will do it. The pharmaceutical way seems to be the norm these days, but that is a slippery slope. We all seek to find our happy place when life throws us a curveball or two, and the simple joy of spending time children and puppies or having a glass of wine with a dear friend can improve anyone’s day. By the way have you seen this video yet?

    I hope your weekend is filled with sunshine , hugs and lots of laughter! – Lola
