stone #7

softness has crept into the room -
candlelight shading the walls,
an oil burner bubbling with cedarwood and sweet jasmine,
my cat's gentle presence,
my wife's warm hand folded into mine.

I'm relaxing as I read - a calm stone and one I can see and feel in my mind and heart.

It doesn't get much better than that.

Such calming images and precise words. :) This is just one of the many things I love about your writing... the way you choose such fitting, descriptive words.

A perfectly described scene, nothing extraneous and everything essential.
