For the month of June, I’m participating in a WordPress Writing 101 challenge.  Each day will have a different assignment and twist.  Today’s theme is writing about a room with a view.   This poem describes my perfect place. 

A ROOM WITH A VIEW

Fluffy white duvet
like falling on a cloud.
Outside, the lake laps the shore
in steady time with my heartbeat.
The world smells green,
alive with honeysuckle and wet grass.
A doe and her charges graze
on clover in the distance.
The sun rises over mountains
Standing Sentinel.
No evidence of a world beyond.
No traffic.
No blaring or beeping.
Just simple solitude and
An excellent cup of coffee
with just enough cream.
Plush robe, fuzzy slippers,
and a good book.
Heaven.
