Savoring Summer Saturdays {naps}


Not just for babies or little ones, 
naps are for grown ups too.
They are free
and easy to assemble.

Find a soft place.
A chair, a sofa, a bed
or even a bed of grass
beneath a shady tree.

 Close tired eyes.
Sink.
Notice the play
of sunlight and shadow
behind your lids. 

Let the world 
slow
down around 
you.

Rest.
Doze.
You are allowed
to snore.
No one is watching.

Naps restore 
the soul.

For a few minutes or more
you can be the little one
held in the arms
of a warm 
summer 
afternoon.
