Oh, to hold this moment
Wherein I am at peace:
Knitting resting on my lap,
Dog sleeping at my feet.
The night comes down, a purple curtain,
Inside I’m safe and warm.
It’s quiet here, and all around
Window lights glow gold.
Oh, to hold this feeling
That I’m where I need to be –
That all life’s cruel and evil tricks
Cannot trouble me.
And yet I know this peace will flee
Though I knit it into my scarf.
Here is love and here is rest,
Though outside it is dark.
The world is tough, the world is harsh –
Cruel lessons still to learn –
I live in fear my fragile peace
Will fracture, dissolve or burn.
And yet I try to hold this moment
To sear it into my soul
Where all is dark and troubled
And I can never be whole.
The above photos are with Mr Fluffypants today. The attached photo is Gracie Fields’ house which we stumble across on our walk.
Look who evolved earlier:
Now Mr Fluffypants is resting and am sort-of watching The O.A and now will carry on with my knitting…
Happy Tuesday everyone!
