My wife and I share a dream
Of a modest house among some trees
A garden path beside meadows stream
We’ll walk along in a warm summer’s breeze
Grass enough to set our chair
Under the sunrise of a new day
Washing our souls in the clean fresh air
Letting all our troubles just melt away
A lazy dog at our feet
A glass of sweetened ice tea in hand
No phones, tablets, no Facebook or tweets
Just her and me, following love’s command
Quiet nights with no doors locked
Hearing nature in gentle breezes sway
Awaken in the morn’ without clocks
We’ll kiss and thank God for another day

Very nice poem!
A life without tweets, facebook, and gizmos of all sorts would that we could live that life.
What a wondrous dream, and a wife to share utopia with as well, life is perfect.
A huge thank you for all who commented. Your wonderful words of encouragement are greatly appreciated. Thank you to the Vita Brevis team for choosing me to publish one of my poems for this site. It is truly an honor.
From experience, it is a perfect life, Jerry, except for the winter…Reading your words encourages me to hang on for the summer.
Winter just means more time for cuddling.
