My Peace I Give You

Air heavy-laden with late summer,
crickets singing songs of calm,
all around lush with the green of abundance.

The remnants of muck
from a day of meetings and computers and 
endlessly spinning wheels
fall off of me with each step
into this kingdom.

And when I stop to admire
a bushel of wild flowers
I thank God for providing this respite
so I can breathe again with ease.
