Alone and happy

Alone and happy

I look outside my window,
As the rain comes tumbling down,
The wind be howling endlessly,
Just swirling, dancing all around.
 The sky’s the darkest shade of grey,
Here at the ending of the day
Such rich vibrations in the air
It seems that peace is everywhere.

The room is silent, no one’s home,
Just me, I sit here all alone,
With the dog here snoring at my feet,
The fire warming, gentle, sweet.
No voices ringing in my ears,
My mood is sweet, my mind is clear
Whirring computer softly soothes
This evening, how my heart it moves

This evening be a special time
It brings to me such peace,
As I sit quiet, and melancholy,
I’m feeling so much ease
Aloneness can be oh, so sweet
I sit here feeling so complete
 And put attention onto me
Soft and loose, and feeling free.

    "Aloneness can be oh, so sweet", yes it can be, Peter! I enjoy having my peace and quiet, too. I need that solitude, especially, when I want to write poetry. I really liked this poem, Peter! It is very calming and relaxing to read! Great work!...Thank you very much for the great comments on my latest poem!
