I admit it, I like my privacy.


Joyful Solitude


Push open the windows, fling wide the drapes,

Let the sunlight flood in on my freedom!


I dance in the living room, pirouette in the hall,

Take a bow before the two quizzical dogs.


Our house is silent, no real noise but my own

A keyboard madly clicking, the computer’s soft hum.


Today, there is time for ME, me alone with the mutts

Tomorrow too, unfettered, unwatched, untasked.


Longer than that, well, yes, that might be lonely,

But today, oh, today is beyond lovely. 



Eileen Clemens Granfors, April 2008
