Just some thoughts in my mind today:
As morning begins, my eyes pop open.
Feet find the floor; where is my coffee?
Your brain starts to buzz with do-lists and got to’s.
Outside is bustling; darn, where is my coffee?
The shower beckons, clothes all ready.
Twenty more minutes and I’m out the door.
Coffee in hand, keys in the other.
Ignition now on as I buzz past the statutes.
They stand so tall, so still, so silent
watching me pass by as I gaze behind.
Today I stop, coffee still in hand
thanking for their reminder to slow down my day.
My mind calms, I go within:
I am grateful and thankful to these stones of old
as I quiet my mind to be “still” in the moment.
