…from ‘Drifting Toward Light’

~Bliss~(New Year’s Day 2006)

For rain
and relaxation
I am grateful

after heat
and fireworks,
New Year’s Eve

it is blissful
to lie about
and read,
to drift
into light sleeps

wake to raindrops
on acacia leaves
and shining agapanthus

sparrows playful,
joyous on tin roof
and in bird bath

the day is quiet
I listen to some poetry
I’ve taped

strum on the guitar
wash lunch dishes
as though they were sacred objects

content with simplicity,
aware of deep peace
words flow
to become this poem
~ bliss.
