An Old Brown Leather Couch



Nobodyís home


Theyíve all gone someplace


the Philippines


Bakersfield


Fresno


work



Even Tobi and Spencer are gone


no salt and pepper dogs


clamoring for attention


I finish my last load of laundry


then listen to the dryer spinning



Iím having my


books


cerebral reflections


journal


a momentary hummingbird visitor


the cell phone that hasnít rung


since 11:30 this morning



Iím in the midst of a cool, green space


in this back yard


a yard full of assorted plants keeps me company


wind ruffles the young avocado tree


in front of the concrete block wall


the palm trees are silhouetted


against a cloud-free Hollywood sky


I am not alone



Iíve escaped the confines of my apartment


Iím in a peaceful solitude


The drowsiness of relaxation


stops time stop as I sit


on an old brown leather couch

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
