Peaceful Mowing

Peacefully, I choose to mow the lawn (what is left of it.

I have been converting it to garden and perennials and edibles).

Peacefully, I know that I can take each next step.

Ask for help to start the mower.

Carefully proceed through the tall grass.

Angle gently to move a brick out of the way.

Clear the area to open the back gate.

Use a rubber band to tie the handle to keep the mower running while I move my car out of the way.

Proceed to mow next to the driveway.

Peacefully, I work my way back inside the gate and close it.

Gently, I continue mowing until I hit a snag and the mower stops.

No problem, I can start again later.

I accomplished what I set out to do.
