The First Sigh Within


Blocking out the swirling howl,
that moment of peace in solace.
Bringing comfort from the world around,
but can’t escape the whirl within.
Yet in the moment the padding envelops,
retracting me from the surrounding howl,
bringing the first moment of peace long yearned,
the first sigh within that brings relief.
