Thankful Now

Too late at night,
between demands,
migraine lurking,
laundry unfinished,
I sit in quiet home,
Deep chair embraces,
Wall colors glow.
Sleepers breath safely.
No turkey or pies needed.
I am thankful right now.


  1. I could feel your thankfulness, after a long day probably, as you sat embraced by the deep chair!

  2. I hear pain, fatigue, chores wait, yet you find thankfulness in the breath of the sleepers, the quiet house, the comfort of a deep chair late at night.

  3. Ah, those precious quiet times after the fray. Love these times and I wouldn't get up out of that chair until I thoroughly enjoy that moment.
