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

In peace I begin my day.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
