Some of My Favorite Places

My favorite place is wherever I am…or, most often, someplace else.

Regardless, those places always include green trees, water, moderately warm temperatures, and frequently – adult beverages.

Anticipation

A comfortable pair of old shoes

Some days the anticipation of going out
Is heavily outweighed
By the laid-back comfort of all
That’s right here.

There’s no burning need to step outside
Anticipation of the unknown
Is heavily outweighed by the comfort of all
That’s right here.
