Entry 30: Time Stretches

AccidentalPerfectionistBlog

I open my eyes to a morning glow

for one moment there is

nothing

the clock stands silent

until my mind knocks on the door of my

awareness

chattering quietly then quicker

the clock ticking and tapping

I inhale a slow

breath

soothing the prattle

my neurons awaken pulsing with

intention

choices stem from there

in the morning I meander among the redwoods

and delight my taste buds

filling my stomach with freshness

I then voyage to the

farthest waters watching blue whales

leap from choppy seas

mid-day I attempt to learn to knit

fingers fumbling

relieved of the burden to know-it-all

over dinner I commune with a loved one

sharing heart stories and dreams

then I paint works of art that

mirror the anatomy of my soul

before dreamtime I ponder and

breathe in

chest expanding

the wonder of a day where

time

stretches

until tomorrow
