sitting on my front porch..coffee in hand..i watch the world pass by
it's a quiet time for me..a relaxing time..where i find peace..tranquility
there are no demands on my time..no one breaking into my solitude
except for the occassional car with its stereo at a deafening volume

but mostly this is a quiet town..set back at the base of the hills
the river rushing on its way..carrying the barges to their destinations
a sleepy town..like me now in my sr years..sleepy..enjoying this quiet
summer is almost upon us now..that might explain some of the sleepiness

yet i relish this quiet..non abrasive atmosphere..that says peace at last
no longer do i live for the night light..the bustle of the big cities
no more actions of a youthful life..no more job excellerations
just the quiet and peaceful life to see me through as i age gracefully

yes..i have found my peace at last..where i can hold seance with memories
the places i have lived or visited..the people i have met along the way
the knowledge i have acquired..the experiences..some bad..some good
a life i chose..a life i lived..a life i learned from..a life i now enjoy

I love how peacefully you describe life on the river. I still spend very busy days working on my writing and contacts. I need to get out of town to enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. Someday, when I slow down, I want to be where you are at right now.
