A quite little cottage by the sea,
spending my days happy and free.
Winter nights staring into the fire
waiting for thoughts that will inspire.
Beaches empty and all to myself
an oasis away from everyone else.
Collecting shells to place on the mantle
alongside my various scented candles.
The sea breeze cuts through to the soul
leaving me fresh and feeling in control.
Some may regard it a lonely subsistence
but for me it is truly a heavenly existence.
