The Little Things
The stripe of sunlight on a warm oak table
A quiet moment where nothing else occurs
A New Yorker magazine illuminates a coffee cup
An orange cover reflected up.
Glowing with an easy, cool fire
Calling the eye to touch reality.
A simple lampshade holding the patterns of a lace curtain.
Reading glasses of my loved one, promising his return
A stack of magazines inviting the curious,
Pages filled with who knows what
Find serenity here.
Sitting in the stillness of a morning bedroom
Sitting, breathing, a body at rest.
How beautiful, the graceful lines and colors, the patterns;
A wonder that has come to be
Cast your gaze afar
Through the window, there's another world of vibrant green
A brilliant backdrop to books on a nightstand
Clutter and tone, just reflecting something true.
Find your center, here.
May this content benefit you, those you love, and all sentient beings, everywhere.
