Nook use thisAA

We meet up for a bowl and brew

When winter days are short

And darkness fills the edge of hours

And shortens lives too far apart

🔻

The muddy Collie, winding stairs

Are worth the sodden ball and park

The panting dog with coursing blood

Now flops, no more to chase and bark

🔻

I leave the table free for you

While shaking coat of leaves

The dripping heap disturbs no one

Tucked high in writer’s eaves

🔻

The notebook freshly muddied

Now flaps open, dripped anew

Ideas spark as coffee starts

To focus hidden inner view

🔻

The years are hundreds since

This nook was crafted first

How many pens have scribbled here

How many hearts have burst?

🔻

So take this chair, wiped freshly dry

And sup with me a while

And let us conjure worlds anew

And bring that winter smile…
