My Oasis

When there is too much clatter and glare,

I make myself stop and stare at one flower.


I close my mind to all else.

There are no weeds. There are no dirty dishes. No tweets. No news.

Just me and the flower.


I did this many times yesterday.

The chaos kept coming, so I kept going back to that flower.

I sat on a bench near it.

I focused on its beauty and nothing else.

Again and again. One only. Only one.


Until I had an oasis in my head.

A place of peace.
