The house is quiet after a busy day.
I sit alone on the sofa,
Reflecting as I listen to the clock in the kitchen;
Tick, tock, tick…
Priscilla, my cat,
Joins me at the other end of the couch by my feet.
She purrs with contentment;
A soft, rhythmic sound.
Friends, family and neighbors surround me,
I am wealthy:
Love, peace, hope and joy
Fill my soul.
Life’s treasures are funny,
The greatest ones are a bit intangible;
Perhaps even indescribable.
Catching thoughts is like chasing clouds;
My mind is sleepy.
Coziness wraps me in her blanket;
Time to rest now.
