A Hearth in Storm-time

All the pretense
brushed aside.

life itself—
to a good fire,

A warm hearth,

And a loved dog

The simple things in life: a fire on a stormy day, and a faithful canine companion enjoying it with you. Now there's contentment.

I guess things really haven't changed a lot since we lived in caves. The simple things are the best.

Good. Just plain good.

Watch your fire safety, those newspapers are pretty close to the stove. A stray spark when it is open could smoulder and become a problem.

Thanks all.

I was wondering when someone would mention the papers. The way my glass doors are hinged there is no way that a spark could reach them. But thanks for thinking 'bout me!
