Vacation in my Mind

The sun is out again.

I am trying to absorb the rays, to somehow store them deep inside me,

under my skin so that when once again,

when I am forced back into my sealed chamber,

I will glow with light and memories of this past week.

I did not take a grand vacation,

or even an overnight trip.

Instead I went inward.

My vacation was silence, stillness, and rest.

To heal from weeks of constant chaos and stress.

I sat on the porch in the sun and shade.

I watched birds come to the feeder with the cat at my feet.

I read books, and wrote.

I ate when I was hungry; I slept when I grew weary.

I pushed the ugly aside, and replaced it with beauty.
