Haiku

I’m up north on a mini getaway looking for rest and relaxation.  There has to be something said about sleeping in complete darkness.  No blinking lights from the outside world, no neon green lights from the alarm clock on your bedside table reminding you that you need to get up in exactly 2 hours and 15 min, no flashing light from your smartphone beckoning you to see what the notification is about, no spending time on facebook, pintrest, instagram or twitter.  It’s just you and nature.  I slept like a baby. I enjoyed the deepest sleep I have had in years and I woke up with a smile on my face. I am reminded of a poem my son wrote in 4th grade, a haiku that has stayed with me still even though it is 4 years later:

Deep in the mountains

There is a wind in the air

Soon, there is silence

I feel peaceful, calm and happy…
