Musings in the Night / Decisions for the Day

Musings in the Night - Decisions in the Day

Boom-boom!

What…?

Boom-boom!

I hear it!

A knocking, suddenly.

Loudly.

Waking me in the dark.

I open my eyes, struggling to see against the thick, black air of night around me.

The bleak abruptness of it all is confusing and startling all at once.

I have to strain my mind to remember where I am.

Boom-boom!

Again.

There it is.

I sit up, listening.

My ears – No – my entire body is in tune to my surroundings, endeavoring to solve the mystery of what woke me.

In a rush, my spine tingles with the realization that the noise isn’t a knocking.

Boom-boom!

In fact, it isn’t and external drumming at all.

Thumb-thump?!

Yes, that’s it.

Thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump!

It’s an internal declaration of life.

Thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump!

The mystery sound is coming from the inside, rather that the reverse.

Thump-thump, thump-thump, thump-thump!

A vital bodily instrument functioning well; letting me know quite efficiently that I’m alive, still here on planet Earth, and another day is about to dawn.

Wow!

What a fabulous sound!

What a wonderful instrument!

I lay back down again in the liquid black of dark, allowing the thump-thump-thumps of my obviously very healthy heart to slow and relax with my gentle breathing, as a smile reaches my face.

Swish, in.

Whoosh, out.

Swish, in.

Whoosh, out.

Ah, but this beautiful melody is another very winding and complicated story entirely.

For another time perhaps.

As for now, I have decided –

Today is going to be an awesome day!

"...for now, I have decided - Today is going to be AWESOME day!"

    What a wonderful perspective! I don’t always proceed in that manner.
