Familiar Rhythms

After a trial, once the storm 

has passed, those hours 

after your heart 

has been beating so fast,

in the still-falling hush

once you can breathe again,

you find solace in the simplest

gifts, the quiet of evening,

your own favorite chair,

the way sunset casts light

through a parted curtain,

and you settle into the deep

sighs and familiar rhythms of home.
