Peace of Wild Things poem by Wendell Berry written in calligraphy superimposed on a scene with a wild heron fishing

A Calligraphy Poem to Soothe Anxiety

So many people are reporting stress and anxiety from watching the news and worrying about the state of our country and the world. Art and poetry can have a healing affect on your mental health! This beautiful calligraphy poem with a beautiful background, The Peace of Wild Things, written by Wendell Berry addresses those feelings of despair and talks about the positive affect of being in nature. The poet may be speaking in metaphors, but actual scientific research agrees with him. Walking in a forest can lower your blood pressure by 15%, it clears your head. Being in nature helps put your life in perspective. It improves your mood, which in turn can improve your health.

Keep Beautiful Things Around You

Why stress about the things you cannot change? Fill your life with as much beauty as possible. Beautiful photographs of nature, with quotes beautifully written in calligraphy can fill that need when you can’t get out into nature!


My suggestion is to ignore the news – there’s little you can actually do about it. Do the things you can that make you feel better. Maybe joining a group, writing to your representatives or shouting out the window. Then read this poem, and calm yourself down. Go out in the nature around you – listen to the birds, crickets; look at the beauty in the trees, the sky. Come to the “peace of the wild things that do not tax their lives” worrying about the future. They are here and now, in the present. You can be there as well. Your attitude is a choice.

Words To Live By

OK, so that’s my meandering around the subject of politics. My calligraphy services include spiritual poems, religious scripture and other inspirational quotes to inspire, motivate and offer consolation. Having these “words to live by” nearby can get you back on track. These poems can be made in a very small size, so you can even order a copy to carry around in your wallet as a reminder. Combining words to live by written in calligraphy with a beautiful picture has a double effect.
