Snap, crackle and pop
We’re not talking Rice Krispies
The sound of a fire

The good kind that calms
While holding a cup of joe
Staring straight ahead

Totally relaxed
Thinking of nothing or lots
Whatever the mood

The embers burn bright
The smoke constantly moving
The flames make me stare

No notice of time
It just gets away from you
But that’s a good thing

As we do not sit
Emptying our minds of thoughts
Quite often enough

Toasty hugs, Margie

Grand Opening of ZenEyes tomorrow!

I am happy as a clam when I am being creative. Writing for this blog, expressing myself through haiku poetry, exploring nature and life through zen eyes, and dabbling in various art mediums, makes my spirit sing.
