My Quiet Place

My Quiet Place
November 22, 2011 16 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

In the mornings
Just before the house awakes
A hot cup of coffee in hand.

This is my quiet space.

A Sunday drive
Down country roads
Trees ablaze in fall splendor.

This is my quiet space.

In the wee hours
Children nestled snug in their beds
The cadence of a snoring husband nearby.

This is my quiet space.

In the living room
Absent of little handprints
Red couch and golden floor warming me.

This is my quiet place.

In the bed
Pillow soft and inviting
When at last my thoughts are put to rest.

This is my quiet place.

This week we asked you to write about your quiet place. Where is it? What does it look like? What happens there? Our word limit was 200.

      Haha. That’s a daily thing here too. Definitely makes my quiet spaces MUCH more appreciated. Sometimes I have to just take a breath and view the world around me.
