In Our Living Room

20150225_210030

An afghan blanket, draped over our recliner

a leather sofa with purses, and shopping bags with clothing

a wooden desk with books on farming, and a pill container

a piano – empty now,

the children gone off to college,

and the dog waits patiently

for the loneliness to leave.
