watching

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…

quiet puppy in chaos

i follow his gaze offscreen

i find my own prince of peace,

sitting and watching me.

i need look no further for refuge  –

Hey, there!

wanna go outside?
