by Chandra T. Mountain
You are… the steadying quiet of the morning before the day rushes in, crashing against my plans and schemes; the gentle brush of warmth soft on my cheek when my spirit bows to weariness; the calm enveloping my soul as I am crossing over to anxiety and restlessness; the baptism of sunlight ushering in beauty and delight, bringing sweet repose to a soul unsettled and worn. You are…my song of consolation and joy.
