A new season for me…

My dream house is located
in the imaginary town
where we live out in the country
and peace and quiet are found.

My kids roam free
in my fenceless yard
without worry of strangers
or busy cars.

The weather is nice
with plenty of sun
I rock on my porch
watching my kids run.

Naptime silence and
afternoon showers,
I sit down to write
at my table of fresh flowers.

Our windows are open
throughout autumn and spring,
my screen door swings
with a familiar ring.

Occasional summer days
bring heat for water play
and a short December frost
with just enough snow for a few days.

The town is down the road,
filled with a community of friends.
Family is close by…
Sundays spent with your kin.

I used to dream of city lights,
with big checks and my name on a door
but as I grow older, I’m learning
that less is really more…
