A morning meditation

Foggy Summer Morning — Image created by Ravyne Hawke using NightCafe — charcoal & watercolor

As day breaks
a thick blanket of fog
settles upon the neighborhood
obscuring even Mr. Smokes —
his greyish-brown fur blends
with grey wood beams and light grey cement —
only his blue eyes and quiet meow
alert me to his presence

In the stillness of that moment
with low-hanging clouds
and a slight nudge of Mr. Smokes’ head
I breathe in the cooler air of morning —
grateful for a new day of possibilities
before the fog lifts and the summer heat
chases me back inside to my solitary abode —
What a glorious day the Divine has made!
