Today

Today, 

I sit in silence

Relishing the quiet.

Dog upon my lap,

Ample enough to host the cat,

Without discord or feud

Together we all snooze

As the rain outside

Yields to brighter skies

Inviting me to rise.

A momentary urge

Suppressed by purrs and fur.

And so we linger here

With neither drive nor fear.

Today.
