Cool Air Kisses



Cool Air Kisses


In the silence of the evening

I sit, snuggled up with a blanket,

In a chair beneath the window

That looks out into the world.

A starless night,

Covered with gentle clouds,

Still leaves plenty of room

For my imagination to soar

With the moon

To far away places.

The cool night air finds

Its way to any inch of exposed skin

Tenderly kissing it goodnight.

The scent of a wood burning stove reaches

My nose,

Sending me back to the days

And nights in the woods.

Comfort and ease rise in my system as the taste

Smell and feel of the air

Transport me to another place

Another time.

Every muscle relaxes

As my whole body lets go

Releases all the stress and worry

Everything floats away.

All that is left is

The cool kisses of air on my skin,

The tree standing sentinel outside the window.

Utter peace and contentment as sleep

Takes over.


A wonderful way to end the week. Wrapped up in the beauty of an evening in communication with nature. Especially after all the stress and craziness of the holidays, a break is much needed. Just letting go and relaxing into the night can do wonders for a troubled mind. May you all have a wonderful evening like this to look forward to on this Friday.
