afternoon doze

Afternoon Doze
I´m looking at a blinking icon on a white screen
I have spent an hour in a state of bliss and 
not feeling the need to do anything other then
to enjoy the calm. Afar I hear a cement mixer
rumble let it resound it only makes my peace
deeper but I´m aware of a dog´s bark outside
the front door it is soft bark wants me to open
the door and give it a slice of ham or a cuddle.
I do that, and the dog walks away….happy.
There was a time when I thought I had to be 
active all the time not allowing calm, thinking 
It was laziness. A white screen but I could not
resist filling it with words to remind me of how
good silence can be and how easily it can be
disturbed by a ringing phone snapping my mind 
back to the mundane.

    I love it Jan. If Alexander Graham Bell knew what an annoyance he created he would have invented it anyway. Ir's breaking spells is not it's only purpose. The laziest of us can block a lot. love, Kathy
