I lie on the floor
A simple blanket covers me
A small pillow filled with beans
occupies the space between the floor and the back of my head
and on a whisper through the window
the scent of the forest
the sound of crickets

In this simple moment before my eyes close for the night
I am more content than ever
A calm peace fills my body
as I am reminded what a gift it is
to live and breathe as a cast member
of this most extraordinary show which is earth, nature, universe
