Into The Gray
Hours fall into shadow
The night is finally still
You’ve waited for this simplicity all throughout the day
After talk, maybe songs, or perhaps a bedtime story
Now it’s time for you
To completely come undone
Let your worries be hushed
Let the day melt away
Like powdered sugar snow
As you fall into the gray.
What I like to call “the gray” is a space in time which comes after the white light of day but before the black darkness of night; a place where I can finally put my thoughts to rest, reflect on my life’s journey, and take a deep breath in order to find my way back to the fresh start of a new tomorrow.
When I consciously engage with how I’ve evolved in this way, it helps me to make meaning of my past, enabling me to surrender it and “put it to bed” as well as myself.
By setting this special time aside each night, it allows me to envision my life as one that is growing. It’s like closing a door on the day’s past and opening a new door to my future.
In fact, after I have thought about the day’s events for a moment, I visualize closing a door behind them in my mind. Then I let my clearer, more serene mind carry me into the peaceful hours of the night.
The past has its place, the future waits with hope, and I rest more comfortably in the present moment.
Wishing you restful nights filled with pleasant dreams,
