Toe signals that the water is just right
To wash away this day’s fights

step in
to soak in a warm glow
gaze at a sheet of foam

stillness
even as the bubbles bounce
slowly here
a flicker there

Silence, at last

thoughts continue to ripple
a wide circle

words unspoken spill over
submerge

healing
reviving
preparing for the night.

    That sounds so lovely and relaxing. I think my toe actually twitched at the thought of having a stress relieving bath. We only have a stand up shower, so this was like indulging in baths I currently can’t have and it was bliss 🙂

    Yes! Even the thoughts melt into the bath. Such a holiness, this particular well-earned silence!
