Is it the calm before the storm?
or is it the beginning of some much need quiet time?
I can not say, but today for the first time ...
in a long time, i sat quietly on the porch,
most worries leaving my mind,
clearing my heart.
I was rewarded with wonderful gifts,
a hummingbird stop to taste the bright flowers,
a band played off in the near distance,
celebrating in a parade.
This i need,
for my mind has worn thin,
and my heart too troubled.
It is time for rest.
