Breathe Deeply

The crackle of the tv fireplace

Stirs my mind

As I read others’ words

Pausing 

To breathe back in focus

Continuing to add more on the to-do list

But it does not include

Peace

Or 

A quiet mind

No

I have to push those down

For the magical lights have gone up

While the night blankets our world

We put our decorations

For they are more to us than products

They are happiness

And

Memories

Stop

Admire

Breathe deeply back in focus

Watch what is around you

Love
