Calm

Calm

Listen.

Silence your thoughts
There is work to be done

Move with unmistakable swiftness
Let your feet be as silent as your mind

Breathe in the waves of the ocean
Receive the sands with arms wide open

Breathe out the sand dunes of issues
Let them leave you as the ocean retreats

Begging your troubles to follow
To make their home in the sea

Sit in a room
Solitude should be your only companion

Let the arms of your chair
Wrap you in their comfort

Let your head hang backward
As of searching for the exact number of ceiling tiles

Feel the weight begin to leave you
Head growing lighter as your shoulders relax

Place your feet in the ottoman
Outwardly showing a deep exhale

Signaling a days end
Rest is soon to follow
