I am being drawn in again….now to this….Haibun Monday prompt. Here goes. Thank you to Grace for the prompt.
“For this week’s prompt, think about a moment of your typical day (first person singular). This can be your morning routine, commute, day in the office, a walk in the afternoon, household chores, grocery shopping, gardening etc. Here’s the challenge: write and find the “extra” in your ordinary day.”

Not nearly enough sleep. Not uncommon. Towel, scrunchy and soap gathered I climb down the stairs to the shower room and lock the door behind me. My time. My space. No interruptions welcomed. I Strip. I turn the dials, ritually, tweaking for temperature. Then I step in to the water as it falls. Always extraordinary and so, potentially ordinary, no? But this falling of individual pearls of warmth that caress and sooth and replenish. It’s like a brand new miracle with every tiny splash. I cannot but surrender to this liquid rebirth. Every moment. Every morning.
