Daydreams brought on by thoughts of age and change and acceptance 

Heartís Desire




Yesterday a TIA brought

Vertigo and sustained fatigue

Kept me in my hearth side chair

A warming fire my consolation 


It’s depthless embers mesmerizing 

it’s nascent flames hypnotic   

My mind in thrall with thoughts

Of limits placed by health and years


Brought about through happenstance

And time both of which are creatures

Whose unconquerable kingdoms 

I can but mold to my heart’s desire

Despite the fact that the hearthside chair is, in the poem, a confinement, it strikes this reader as not a bad place to be (especially with the hearth-fire burning!).

And with your poem, you provide a kind of hearth for the reader, at which we gladly join you.
