Resting

Sitting in the shade under the magnolia tree
Feeling the gentle breeze of this spring morning
I know that resting is my tired body’s simple need.

I listen to the birdsongs
The hoot of a distant owl
The dull roar of an airplane.

Respecting my body’s limitations
I give thanks for this beautiful day
And I know in my heart
All shall be well.
