Writers Digest November PAD Challenge 2015/ Luxury


what is luxury after all         perhaps...                   someone to come home to

a lover                                  a friend                       a partner

a pet                                      loyal and warm          a bed in which to rest

a roof over my head              something good to eat               a bowl of soup

a loaf of bread                       a pair of shoes           a coat in winter

work of my own                    a smile freely given  a hand to hold

a book to read                        a letter from home    safety

health                                     eyes to see                a heart that beats

love confirmed                       given and received   a starry night

a day of happiness                  a memory cherished             thoughts of you

YES! I know that the days when I tootle home in my little red car, with some books from the library, a rented movie or two, a few little edibles and a bottle of wine for the weekend, I feel richly blessed. I live in one room but, compared to millions on the planet, I live in unheard of - undreamed of - luxury. Thanks for writing this, Annell, and reminding us we are all very fortunate indeed.
