contentment

The Trail Lies Ahead

THE TRAIL LIES AHEAD

The morning mist surrounds her
and vast open land awaits.
Nothing stands in her way ~ yet,
she hesitates,
waiting in silence.

Sensing her world will soon change,
she pauses to soak in this
place of peace.

CONTENTED

I
do
envy
cats—they can
play in sun’s warm rays,
enjoying their day, their own way.
On a blanket of blue, contentment is on display.

A Stellar Day

 

A STELLAR DAY

with a smudge of delicious
fudge on my chin, and inquisitive
children tucked into bed,
exhaustion settles over me

my body urges my mind
to activate my evening mantra,
an effort to bring unity
to heart, mind, and body

I merge reality with dreams as
modern technology projects
sweet sounds in my ear,
my favorites sing me to sleep
