Resonates Our Solitude

Interesting conversations sipping tea
in bed, a rustic gypsy-runes duvet
arrayed with modesty impeccably
intact, rain outside a lesser burden
now – the chocolate-box allure adroitly
played and lost in vapid conscience
stakes; we’ll stay abed to hang the
effigy with desultory laziness 

beyond the picture window-panes
a misty grey compares with energy
restrained in boughs of leaf that
breathe a soulful calming mood – this
morning wakes in soothing sound
resonates our solitude
