One Single Impression: Joie de vivre


















Joie de Vivre

Move curtain aside,
peek out bedroom window,
see waves of clouds

cresting slowly
over mountains. Notice
hillsides getting rusty.

Put on flannel pajamas,
the navy blue ones with stars
and moons.

Descend stairs in quiet
house, turn heat to 70,
settle into recliner,

power up computer,
make sunshine
word after word.

Don't you like to turn out those shining words! Most bloggers do, I think. Then writing poetry word after word? It doesn't get much better than this!

I liked the imaging of those navy blue flannel PJ's. We don't get cold enough for those here in South Texas.
