Nap time

I am at that point in the day

When your morning

Is spent

More than half the day gone

And your eyes

Start to weigh

More than a ton

That point in the day

When any music

Will lull you to sleep

Even the meeting starts to

Make your eyes water

I am at the point in the day

When the dark warmth

Closes in and

Puts me to sleep

Fast asleep on my desk

Love

Whether or not

Todays sunshine shines

Across the tops of the

Rose garden

Whether or not

The twittering bird

Says hello to the moon

You are loved

You are loved

Whether or not

The mailman

Says goodbye

To the older lady

On the stairs

Whether or not

The baby bear

Finds a place

To see the mountains

You are loved

You are loved

Even the tiniest

Smile

And the smallest

Moments

Show

That you

Are loved

You are loved

Take heart and sing

To yourself

You are loved

You are loved

Sunrise

As the new day dawns

For the millionth time

The sun peeks over

The horizon

It happens every time

But it is still

A blessing

Its still amazing

How the sun

Rises

To meet the day

Discovering that

The new life

I can lead

Is easy

And the yoke is light

For even the tears now

Can turn to a smile in the future

Its an easy

One

Two

Three

Steps and then you will

Find the happiness

That surfaces when you

Find a buttercup

In the garden

Loose leaves

And light colors

Falling through

The branches

To light the way

And keep a lamp at my feet

I look forward with my

Head held high

So much

When you breathe and feel

Your whole heart expanding

Meeting a day

A moment

In time

And every fiber

Of your being

Feels wide awake

Charged

Stretching and pacing

Because the energy

Moves and makes

You want to never look back

Too much

So many

Heart pounding

Mind focusing

Sensations

That it overwhelms

Your mind

Running

Chasing

Around thought and ideas

For tomorrow

And the rest of your life

Work

Do you ever

Take a moment

On your commute

To work

And wonder

If there will

Be so much traffic

That you are forced to

Turn around

And go home?

I wouldn’t mind

Winter weather

The bitter biting

Chill

Whipped through

My jacket.

Even though

I wore mittens

My fingers

Clenched together

In utter desperation

To find

Warmth.

Baby its cold outside

And the charm of

These icicles has worn

Thin

For this weather feels

Like the sounding call

Of a mighty

Snow mountain king

Home

There a good happy

Things

In my life

And I took the time

To relish

Just the other day

A glimpse into the present

And I realized

I have more than a full

Life.

It was one of those thoughts

I thought I’d never think

One of those ideas

That I could never call my own

Yes I’ve grown

But I still feel grounded

Realizing that

My life

Is

My home

Warm Sleepy Blankets

Oh how I wish to

Rest a little longer

In the warm snuggled

Cocoon of the

Warm sleepy blankets

And forget about

Breakfast

And waking up

To start the day.

Oh how I wish

There was a magical spell

To turn the warm knitted

Comforts of my bed

Into a garment

That I don

This morning
