i'd like life to be quiet and lovely like distant church-bells chiming through snow, muted by the smell of an old book and the feel of a fire warming me into my chair, and a mug of tea, steeping the moment in hushed gratitude, easily in reach.
i really do like living in the city. but i guess my heart is in the country, and far enough north for snow. who knew?
**THANK YOU for all of your support! the DD was an amazing surprise; i'm humbled and grateful. and thank you for all the lovely comments, favs and adds-- i can't even find the words to express my appreciation.
This is absolutely gorgeous. When I finished reading your poem (and even throughout the read), I felt this peaceful feeling settle over my shoulders. I even found myself taking the time to breathe and relax; your poem reminded me of the tiny joys in life, of the importance for loving and breathing. It may seem trivial to others, but I thank you deeply for this reminder; I needed it. As for your lovely poem: congrats on the well-deserved DD! Such a piece of beautiful simplicity, dipped in such vivid imagery... well, let's just say I would be shocked had it been passed up. I hope you continue to write years and years from now: You have such a talent for it (:
