A Freshly Mopped Floor


Here's a poem I wrote a while ago about the joys of a freshly mopped floor. 


A freshly mopped floor

Pearl finish
like
new sheets;
a warm eggshell.

Infinite nerve ends
rest.

New beginnings;
peace and clarity.

Optimism and plans;
satisfaction.

Cool refreshment;
a gentle embrace.

Grounding.

The kindness of a
stone
removed from a shoe.

The relief of
standing
in the rush
of a cool stream.
