Stillness

29 Apr

In the stillness of the morning

when all the tasks of the day are still before me,

but not yet pressing on me,

and the memories of yesterday seem dim,

with His body warm next to me,

my nipples tingling from the fierceness of

the night before,

in the stillness of that moment

i am content.

Sated.

Full of the joy of right now.

    Yes, in that moment we take our deepest breaths, and really feel the present. Beautiful words. Alice x

      Thanks, Faerie,

      It seems to linger a little more all the time, which is nice!

      Hi, Sfp,

      No doubt! And sometimes i think i’m doing it, and then i realize how much i’m not. Sheesh. So i try some more.

      O, wait, that’s right, this is another non-perfect activity, isn’t it? lol…
