Today the sun is out, and sunny.
So, it’s a bright bright day.
The birds are busy singing,
“Why are you inside?”
The windows let in the sun.
Sun calls to leave the walls.
Walls that keep me inside.
Inside my mind, but not outside
Outside there is peace.
Peace is given by the songbirds.
Songbirds who lull me to dozing.
Dozing poolside in the shade.
Shade is the shadow of calm.
Calm under the trees prevails.
Prevails as they guard the quiet.
Quiet and protective they stand.
Stand in the shade and shadow.
Shadow self is revealed to the breezes.
Breezes like a river of cool water,
Water down any thoughts that arise.
Arise they do to the branches.
Branches wide and strong.
Strong enough to hold them.
Them and their beckoning that I too sing along.
