there is end of season chaos everywhere,
ribbons, ornaments, decorations of all sorts and what – still more cookies?
and as i try to sort it out, i turn on a costume drama on the television,
wishing to take my mind away
from the fray –
and on the screen i see a dog in a perfect sit,
looking off screen,
not engaged in the scene – simply period set dressing,
and i follow his eyes –
thinking he is worthy of more interesting engagement than a sit stay beside a fireplace…
i follow his gaze offscreen
i find my own prince of peace,
sitting and watching me.
i need look no further for refuge –
wanna go outside?
