Profoundly refreshed and whole
Renewal affects body and soul.
Cleaning of all the old and tired
A process honoured and admired.
Feelings of relaxation and freedom
A blending of healing through the season.
Culminating in a renewed spirit
Deserving of thanks and great merit.
Understood by others who search
Hoping they too will emerge
Ready, prepared, lifted and wise
Nothing for which to apologise
Soul searching seeking now complete
Emerging changed, from their retreat
