First day of vacation

Published on Aug 4, 2020

It's a rainy day

The branches of the tree sway gently in the wind

It's quiet in the countryside for somebody used to city noises

Not much to hear besides the steady drops of rain

The fridge is stocked with fresh produce

The music is soothing

The tea comforting

and the couch comfy

With everything in it's order I literally feel how my mind is calming too

Some dark and uneasy thoughts show themselves

Then, they leave again

Thoughts and emotions come and go

just like the weather and seasons change

It's time to slow down 

It takes time to adjust to this rhythm  

but a part of me knows this rhythm, feels at ease, breathes deeply and settles in
