Instant Relief

Blindfold wise eyes,
cover both ears,
feelings arise,
to provoke fears.

Cover mouth,
mute profound thoughts,
loud inner shouts,
come straight from source.

Silence my mind,
till joys appear,
love feels so kind,
negative clears.

In and throughout,
up then across.
Happiness sprouts,
positive force.

Rushing takes too long.
Stillness allows full focus.
Time is on my side.

When life takes a turn
and feels a bit bent,
I prepare a bath
made up of intent

Warm running water
creates a sound base,
a calmness soon lurks
erasing the chase.

I then add cologne
florida water,
shut both of my eyes
see my grandmother.

Her smile softly says,
make it like a tea,
a mixture of herbs
and relaxing leaves.

She says her goodbyes
to then drift away,
adding my flowers,
submerged I then lay.

All troubles and aches
are lifted at once,
the bath is then drained
anxiety gone
