You turn the power off on your phone
and allow yourself to fully relax.
The hum of the dishwasher acts as an
anchor for your mind to cling to as you
attempt to soften your face and slow your breath.
Your body feels safe near the Earth. Your palms
face the heavens in hopes of receiving
any messages They might have for you.
You set a timer for thirty minutes
and the sound of a lawnmower outside
nags you, but you let it. You are still, as
the world around you begins to fall
away. The room inside your head has
welcomed you, once again. The warm sun shines
gloriously through bay windows that
overlook a scene of green and cerulean.
You take a seat. Each breath you take soothes you.
Worries do not exist here, in this realm
that spawned from your need to just simply Be.
A lilac sky and clusters of white clouds
fill your vision as the sun begins to
descend. The twilight horizon moves in tune
with your breath and you are safe from your own
self-judgments. You have found serenity
within Solace - this world you created.
