The calm of the hot water

Gently brings me back to life.

The gloriously scented shampoo lather

Cleanses my tresses, renews my spirit.

Soap bar in hand, steam gathering,

The day's worries, trials, washed away.

A body cleansed, a mind relieved.

Skin flush with warmth, face glowing.

The daily opportunity to begin again:

A refreshed, restored version of myself.

The reward after the liberating run,

The reprieve at the day's end.

Refreshed?  Tell us how!  Check out Melissa's Six Word Fridays at Making Things Up.


  1. One of my favourite places to escape is the bath! Header under the water, blocking out the world

  2. Ahhhhhhhhh!!! Yes water is so powerful. Feeling bright and new is so delightful at the end of the day.

  3. Well, now I can't wait to take a hot shower. Thanks for reminding me of the rejuvenating power of a good cleanse.

  4. cleansed and refreshed literally and figuratively. I also love the white noise in the shower. Helps me think. Plus the other people who live here won't interrupt a shower unless it actually is important (unlike most other pastimes) :)

  5. Looking forward to the one I will be taking when the little ones go to sleep. I like the white noise of the shower AND the baby monitor. Truly relaxing! Calgon take me away!

  6. Love that washed-clean-refreshed feeling!
    Now if only I were uninterrupted...

  7. Yes, definitely one of the best ways to refresh body and soul! :D


Tell me what you think...
