Relaxing At Home

Updated on September 19, 2014

Genuine Peace

With the world just outside my window

I have so many places I want to see and go

Even though I have traveled and had so much fun

When I come home it is the happiest place I can be

My simple familiar surroundings give me the most comfort

A quick trip to the refrigerator grabbing an apple or a piece of celery

Makes my day

Opening the windows and doors and letting a breeze rush through

Spreading fresh air and an unclaimed energy left floating

Where we have quiet and calmness

Away from the day to day hustle

The same sun rises and sets

All the traffic and noise pollution is left far away

My favorite chair calls my name

Where I can sit and write for hours without skipping a beat

The common sounds are also pleasing to my ears

The humming motor of my refrigerator and even the odd chirp of a smoke alarm

I can't seem to fix

The bright light in my kitchen

If duplicated around the world

Could shed new light on everyone and every thing

My cat Charlette sound asleep on the couch

Her body half way between two cushions

Slipping slowly into the open space

The silent stove clock that glows the time

Patiently and faithfully working effortlessly

Old reliable has performed it's duties well

Back at the ranch our day goes as usual

When I am tired I can't wait to crawl into

My ice cold clean sheets

I think everyone should be so lucky

      annart Coming home to a relaxing atmosphere even after a crazy day at work.Collecting my thoughts as if they bowling pins scattered all over the alley. In a few minutes they are all in order and lined up waiting to be played with again and again. My day was a great success when there are sweet comments from friends on my hubs that make me smile. Thank you for spending the time reading and sharing.

      Lovely description of the peace and comfort of a loved home. I especially like 'My favorite chair calls my name'. There's nothing like relaxing at home.

      It's fun to spend time out and about, but there really isn't a place like home. I can definitely relate to this poem, well done.
