This morning, the sun too bright.
I’m outside pulling out weeds.
Sweat trickles down my back.
It is a beautiful, sunny day.
My mind focused on the chore.
And also wanting to be indoors.
To be sipping an ice cold juice.
The sound of ice cubes clinking.
At last the garden looks fresh.
Back indoors, I sigh, contented.
Relaxed, I enjoy my ice cold drink.
Everything else can just wait.
