I sit on my wooden porch
Admiring the scenery
Refusing to let the impending woes capture my attention
Instead, I let the summer breeze cool the cup of coffee at my side
Making it lukewarm instead of hot.
I watch my dog as she looks for a place to relieve herself.
There is no one to talk to, to share a cup of coffee with
But I am content with what I have
And what I don’t have.
I have issues, but a break is needed,
Even if that break is only as long as it takes
For the dog to relieve herself.P.E.N.T.C.I.
