Comfort Zone Poem by Cara Alson

Comfort Zone

I found a country garden

Hidden by dense shrubs

Where muffled traffic passes

And jets drone overhead

Cobblestone walkways

Potted greens and blossoms

Plaster dogs and watering cans

Wind chimes accompany the breeze

Someone has made a refuge

Of peace and harmony

A bubbling fountain

Rocking chairs and

Stretching shade trees

Birds and squirrels come

To look for crumbs

And drink at the fountain

They appreciate the effort
