Resting in the stillness

I'm stopping here,
by the side of the road;
turning my engine off
and resting in the moment --
treating my ears
to the lap of the waves
and the chirp of the chickadee;
treating my eyes
to the gentle fade of fog
and the soft greens of early summer;
treating my nose to the fresh salt air
and my cheeks to the brush
of a cool damp breeze,
and -- best of all --
allowing my heart and brain to sit quietly,
breathing in the stillness of the moment.
