Crispness in the air greets us this beautiful fall morning.
Throwing open the windows,
the house fills with the freshness of outside.
A kind of peace and serenity settles in my soul
for today I know where I am and can face the day ahead.
A rhythm establishes as the birds sing outside.
The kitchen seems to almost clean itself,
before I settle into the workday before me.
Even when chaos breaks, which it inevitably does,
I take a moment and breath it in,
that fresh air still coming in,
and relax my neck and back as we forge ahead.
Peace and serenity found me this busy day,
I hope they find me many more times
in the coming days and weeks to come.
