The Needle in the Haystack by John Jack Jackie (Edward) Cooper

You love the small streets,
the quiet precincts;

the lighted window
up on the corner

where a tree this past
Christmas still sparkles,

all the world made
heavenly by a cup

of lemon tea,
simplicity

and nourishment
of mere life, the bed

at dawn, the waiting home —
even one alone,

bare minimum, sometime,
maximum can be.

    1. Quiet, emotion, soft touches, deep thoughts to think-!
      A rhythm in words to take a deep breath to!

  1. Like an artist drawing a few lines,
    just enough to reveal the image,
    your few lines of carefully chosen words
    create a quiet early morning scene.
    Truly word artistry!
