Mesmerizing rain on a roof of metal
comfortable armchair and book I do settle.
A fire softly flickers, its bands of red and gold
stays off the chill of an early morning cold.
Big fur child, that sleeps by my feet
an involuntary sigh of this wonderful treat.
I look out upon the land so green
interpret all that I am able to glean.
How blessed I am to be part of this land
to enrich it, with the work of my hand.
To see the wild ones as they trek on by
the magical formations that form in the sky.
To look up from my readings and look out with a smile
to appreciate life and reconcile.
Acknowledge the grandeur of all that I sense
accepting my place with no pretense.
Now drifting back to my calming sleep
the warmth of my dog upon my feet.
