An Oasis of Calm

I didn’t feel particularly stressed
when I arrived. But she was still at nap,
the house was neat, the other grownup dressed
and leaving on an errand. I made lap
with book and water – of a sudden blessed
in quiet solitude. I had a gap
invade my schedule and I realized this –
a respite well-deserved engenders bliss.

(Ottava Rima)
