life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass
it's about learning to dance in the rain!

this night

i sit,
alone at the desk
dinner was
roasted boneless pork tenderloin
with home made mashed potatoes and salad
gin and tonic to drink
quiet except for grandfather clock
seconds minutes and hours
dogs wait
jealous of my human food
i will share a bit with

sleep was fickle tonight visited for awhile
then had second thoughts
left me wondering what rest was about
left me wondering what the scarves in the dryer looked like
i am up
in middle of night's visit
grandfather's clock sternly tics
measuring off the minutes
that i am not in a state of rest
measuring off the minutes
of my life
naval orange sweet
nourishment in this dark
space oftime
night was
night is
night will
