There’s nothing like

a nice hot bath

when the weather is cold

but bear in mind

you have to do it right

 

As hot as you can stand

a pleasant scent, jasmine maybe, or lavender

whatever makes you happy

and don’t forget the bubbles

 

It must be done at night

never during the day

because it needs to be dark

light a few candles for serenity

 

No reading, or drinking

do nothing that will distract

immerse yourself in sensation

feel the water cleansing you

feel the heat easing your pain

live in this moment

allow yourself this gift

 

And finally, a fast dry off

wrap up quick to keep the heat

slide into bed, into rest

into beautiful dreams

 

This. This is bliss.
