Afternoon Doze

  I'm looking at a blinking icon on a white screen
I have spent an hour in a state of bliss and
not feeling the need to do anything other than
to enjoy the calm. Afar I hear a cement mixer
rumble, let it resound, it only makes my peace
deeper but I'm aware of a dog's bark outside
the front door, it is a soft bark, wants me to open
the door and give it a slice of ham or a cuddle.

I do that, and the dog walks away….happy.
There was a time when I thought I had to be
active all the time not allowing calmness, thinking
it was laziness. A white screen but I could not
resist filling it with words to remind me of how
good silence can be and how easily it can be
disturbed by a ringing phone snapping my mind
back to the mundane.
