Simple Ways Simple Days


We Both work Steady Jobs

That gives us enough money

To have a home we can call our own

From the time we walk through the door

You can feel the peace and quiet

Before we sit down to eat

I prepare a table for two

My wife cooks the Kielbasa and corn on the cob

Just my wife and I

Talking around the kitchen table

Sharing stories about our day

The craziness and the stress

Between our co-workers and the customers

Each has it's challenges

We can't decide which is worse

We are able to clear the air

Then put it behind us

Until tomorrow we face new issues and dilemma's

It keeps us loving home even more

Me unwinding to an interesting book

I hold in my hand

Reading the each printed page

I am in my comfort zone

While my wife

Loves her cooking shows on t.v.

Both of us relaxing in our own ways

Patting our cat Charlotte

Until she drifts off to a sound sleep

We both our looking forward to a special treat

A dessert my wife made

Light and airy with a touch of sweet

Thinking about the life we live

Enjoying our time together

Until we wrap up our day

Off to bed we go

My wife wants sleep

I want to play

Either way it is a beautiful end

To a very fulfilling day

Gypsy Rose Lee It sounds like you got the best of both. You got some writing done and had entertainment at the same time. Making the most of the day is something I strive for. If we know how to entertain ourselves then we will be happy in everything we do. At work, home or doing things that have be done. I am so happy for you and Charlotte sends Sid a great big hi. She is lounging around and had an early breakfast and now is going down for her afternoon nap. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a great Wednesday.

I love days that begin and end well and with much happiness. Last night they had a big concert on the beach. I do not like crowds particularly if I have to go alone. So, in the end, I was glad I had not been curious because we live so close that I could hear the music and everything that was going on and I tell you when whoever was performing screamed into that microphone had I been there I would have grabbed it from him and bopped him one on the head. Anyway worked at my PC and had a concert not bad at all. It is sad though that it is Labor Day already the summer is just about over, we can hope for Indian summer and then the autumn.

Peggy Woods I agree with you. Some how people are attracted to the complicated like hornets are attracted to coca cola. It must be the sweet syrup. I think it is all sugar coated and the surprise is underneath. I try to show how blessed I am every day. It takes time to put all my thoughts together. Sometimes I have to scrap the whole idea and begin again. Some things are meant to be and other things take some time. Thank you for reading and caring.

Kamalesh050 I don't know any other way. This is my life in a nut shell. Some say my nut is cracked right down the middle. They may be right. Then I have two nuts instead of one. I try to bring out the best and worst of my day and shake it up so it so the good can rise to the top and the bad can settle at the bottom. Sometimes it works and sometimes I have to keep shaking until my arms hurt. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope you and your family are well. Pleasant dreams and when you wake up I hope you have the energy of 100 men.

Rinita Sen Thank you for being the first to comment on my poem. Life is amazing and so wonderful I keep trying to capture the love and passion of each experience. Most people spend their whole life pointing out the things that go wrong in life and all our imperfections. I chose to spend all my time celebrating the things that make my life soar with happiness. When I walk away I am filled with delight and creative urges to continue on with my day. I hope you have a beautiful Labor Day weekend.

You have a knack for presenting everyday life so beautifully.
