I wake to a quiet world
My mind is clear
I am at peace
All senses alive
Raw and open
No thoughts, no worries
Listening to the stillness
Simple pleasures
I am content


About Lulu

I take pleasure in the simplest of things. But most of all I enjoy the stillness, there is so much I feel in it.

    You will laugh at my waking up this morning at 3 a.m. in my apartment building! Someone, probably a night shift worker, had put their pants into first the washer, then the dryer with a belt still connected on them. I woke up, threw my robe over my p.j’s. and went to open the dryer, to prevent anymore ‘clank-clank-clanking!’ I loved this poem with the way it feels to awaken, our senses to be raw and alive, our feelings of peacefulness in the stillness. Lulu, this is the way most nights or early mornings feel to me, too!

      That’s an annoying way to be awoken. Were you the only one to hear? I just get restless and wake, sometimes I write and sometimes I just quietly enjoy my peace. I feel happy like a child with no worries, obligations and no thoughts, just pure simple pleasure. I savor the moment and try to carry that feeling throughout the day.

        Savoring the peace, so great a thought! I just sometime lie there, trying to keep my eyes closed. Wishing for more rest! My apt. is across from the laundry and I imagine myself in an intergenerational period, where there would be different people coming and going on shifts, like a New York apartment. So, usually noise is a comfort to me, after getting used to living alone these past 8 years, I can handle a little neighborly wash, just not leaving the belt in there! Smiles!
