A great calm presides.
Sunshine swells warm and joyful, and the hardwood sings a glowing red.
A distant lawnmower drones steady and stoic, rousing memories long forgotten.
A smile emerges from the still, and a myriad of melodies tumble into one wordless, wandering hymn.
Afternoon light flows through the gently curling leaves, casting shadows on the bright oranges and the vivid greens.
A promise of a beautiful sunset is written in the clouds, the seal to my beautiful peace.
