There is no scene

In which I would rather be wrapped
Than this one:
8pm on a Saturday
Sitting at my writing-corner
Comfortable in a closet of organised mess
Leather of the reading-chair cracked in places
The cellphone sleeping
A pen poised

In it I get to think
About the evening fog draped
In folds from trees
Leaves falling on roads on grass
On rivers on roofs
And the wrinkles of the tide
Whose backwash from a rock
Changes the face of history

There is nothing
Outside of this room that I need
Not a job with well-being amongst its KPIs
Nor a country-house with wooden ceilings
Next to a water-fall

No it is quite a bit of all right here
The yellow ovals of light over my head
A small chess-board with small pieces
An antique globe, a glass of water
On a coaster with the Queen on it and
This scrapbook
Each page a memory, a soul of a multitude of souls
In my singular body

  2. I have a corner like yours, Vera. It’s my little retreat, a place where I can hide myself from the sometimes troublesome world. Your writing is very comforting. Thank you. ❤️

  3. Yes, yes, YES!!! Exactly. Mine for me this time of year is sitting in my hammock every evening. Just me, the breeze, trees and the birds. Transportive. Perfect. Loved “seeing” You in Your sacred space. Now that image will play in my head/heart every time I read Your beautiful words!!! That’s so cool. Thank You, Lovely Vera! Cheers!!! 🤗❤️😊
