poem: I’m calming myself down

Feeling the room surround me
Testing each of my senses
Tasting sweet peppermint candy
Touching my feet to the ground
Seeing blue skies out my window
Hearing passing cars,
the bathroom fan,
My deep breathes and
the crunch of peppermint candy.

It takes about an hour to come around.
I’m calming myself down.

When I wrote this it was before day light savings and the sun was shining. Now presently it is dark but growing lightness.

Today as I feel darkness and doubt,
Help me to see the growing lightness.
