shabbos morning rendezvous


.


my entire week exists
..for this moment
it's a moment so blissful
and still
....its the spot
around which the water
ripples
...the wind..leaves
swirl outside its
windows
..trying to rattle it
but instead...just adds to
that tranquility
while the house is
so warm..and still
shabbos morning
.....waits for me
while everything slumbers
..silent rendezvous
like a warm glass of
...books and ideas and
nothing
...and no one
to upset
that perfectly
balanced
slightly
scented
serenity

I'd love to capture
that...
...but capture seems
too harsh a word
..for so gentle
a time

Pretty sure this is something that only men experience. For women, Shabbos morning is something quite different.

Well I would split the shabbos morning into pre 8:00am and post 8:00am the bliss being shattered by the first stirring of the youngins at around that time..

"books and ideas and"

It's the one day I actually get to read books and (partly) therefore it truly is a special day.
