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. :)

That was beautiful! I feel like I can relate to it because even though I love the city and you the country, we both miss where we feel we belong.

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 (:

:tighthug: I think you expressed yourself perfectly.
I am so happy to have been able to draw such a reaction (I felt my previous comment was not enough, too.)

I wish you the very best, and I really look forward to reading more of your work soon (:
