This day may be full

of all that needs to be done

and then some. 

And your shoulders might ache a little

with the weight of responsibility. 

It may seem like rest

and peace is a concept 

flitting even beyond your dreams. 
But somewhere,

pillow-clouds are floating above

a serene lake

while the sun warms the earth. 

Dragonflies are sailing over thistle

and sage is swaying a waltz 

in the purple field. 
If you are too tired to dream,

then simply hold

open your heart 

and your mind to 


It will find the quiet nook

in you and
