the rhythm of this day
is a quiet day
a day for keeping our words close
and our ears, hearts, and minds open.
Mondays are for cleaning in the bedroom
washing the linens, and dusting the old wooden bureaus
putting away clothing hung over a chair
Monday is making soup day
practicing humility and grace and compassion day
I rise early, ready to start the week.
I light a purple candle
fill my home with the scent of jasmine.
In quietude and calm I go about my morning tasks
