My Favorite Time of Day

My favorite time of day
Is when I return from
My morning walk.
I am tired, but pleasantly so.
I make coffee, light my pipe,
And sink into my big blue chair.
Sometimes I think about Joan,
Sometimes not.
Sometimes I read a page or two,
But usually I just sit
And think or meditate
And enjoy my thoughts.
I feel that now is a
Special time in my life.
I look forward to inventing
A new life for myself
And wonder what the new
Day will bring into focus.
