Feels Like Home
When I've been away, there is nothing like home
I sit in my favorite red leather chair
Or I sit in front of my computer
And fill one of my churchwarden pipes
with one of my favorite tobaccos.
I kiss and hug my wife and we talk
about everything that's happening
in our lives and all that is new and interesting.
Of course I greet my cat
with orange and gray fur
she sits in my lap and purrs
while I pet her for awhile
Or my cat Malok sits
in her green comfy chair
very near to my computer desk
and practices the art of sleeping
while I sit at my desk writing,
But she wakes up on occasion
and tells me to feed her
She stands and looks at me
until I get up and honor her request
and then Malok comes back
and sleeps on her chair
while I'm typing on my computer.
When morning arrives
My wife and I eat peanut butter
on toast with jelly and some yogurt
along with fresh brewed coffee
and we watch things on Net Flix.
These are a few of mt daily rituals
that make it feel like home to me
