Though I am looking forward
to eventually finding the destination,
I am trying to focus on the journey,
being in the moment,
my mantra... I am here now.
One week ago I woke up a woman with a heavy heart
mourning for what had just been lost.
But then I opened the curtain
and the sun was out
and its warmth became a constant by my side
for exactly one week.
Sun, you brought me outside to drink my morning coffee
and read a book.
Sun, you got me on my bicycle
to ride in solitude
in your warmth
making my surroundings beautiful
Sun, you urged me to garden
to water my flowers
tend to our beans
smell the scent of lavender on my hands
Sometimes it is nice to end a journey
and then focus on the next one...
