I switch off the electric heater And the room is bathed in silence. Sitting quietly and still, The noises of cars and dog walking Flow up from outside Through the window which shows me Blue sky through the clouds Of this cold winter's day. Babe is off to nursery, Wife is off running, And I have the house to myself. Bliss! My body relaxes and my mind unfurls, Lazily stretching in those precious moments Where the world pauses Before the work day begins.
