Immersive Soak

Dragging both feet,
feeling fatigue,
choose to defeat
this energy.

Prepare a bath,
remove the bad,
to brighten path,
enhance, and add.

Arrange like tea,
mixture of herbs,
to bring the gain,
this heart deserves.

Cinnamon sticks,
to shake things up.
Red pepper flakes,
will cheer and pump.

Fresh squeezed green lime,
cuts negative,
Pinches of thyme,
so protective.

Watch as it boils
for just a bit,
some olive oil,
lets peace transmit.

Three teaspoons of fragrant cologne,
bath salts attract a relaxed zone.
Pour mixture in, but strain it first,
let positive hydrates dry thirst.

To seal this soak, add more perfume,
Florida water, clears away gloom.
Submerge body, close tired eyes,
let all things go, feel joy arise.
