Slice of life

A half-eaten apple
A bite from a slice of toast
In the ripple
Of a life on this west coast

Tousled sheets on an unmade bed
Pillow indented where lay the head

Laundry-mid stream… clothes hanging out together
Waiting their turn to greet the washer-dryer

A laptop tangled amid a collection of wire
Spreadsheets beckoning hither
Phone asleep on the charger

A notebook open, pens and papers
Ready to greet a few new capers

A sketchbook perched this way
Charcoal pencil holding sway
Over a distant memory on display

Baked glass goodies, waiting to be put away
Paintings to be hung, thirsty plants on a tray

Were you to walk through my door
What stories would you share
From this personal slice of life on display?
