Evening Grace

Sitting down at the kitchen table, 
A warm plate of freshly cooked 
Food before me - pausing 
To prepare to give thanks for the day,
I all of a sudden see that ease  
Has crept in – all on its own – 
And begun to find a home
In the body of my life, 
Without me knowing it had arrived. 

Breathing in, I feel 
Tiny tendrils of peace
Twirling and opening out,     
Taking root, in the new found 
Space in my day - in my heart -
Spreading warm comfort 
Throughout - and - into my core, 
Bringing with it ripples 
Of expanding quiet joy  
As I breathe out. 

Feeling already full, bowing my head 
I take hold of the loving hand 
Reaching out for mine,
In silent gratitude, I welcome 
This easy peace, and my Self, home.
