Monday, Again

Rain falling can be so soothing.
Today,
I can’t help but give thanks to the rain,
Its help,
Relaxing stir crazy nerves,
Keeping people at home,
Washing away the pollen,
All the good things rain can do.

A steady shower became a pouring torrent
When the munchies came my way.
A bag of trail mix,
Nuts,
Raisins,
M&Ms,
All lightly salted
Brought a taste I had not savored in a long while.

Too often, I’m rushing,
Stuffing my face
So outside of the tasting moment
That I forget to be mindful
Of the joy food can bring.
Each bite,
Sweet,
Earthy, and oh…that salt…
