The Noon Nap

Three doctor appointments
in two days. All is good.
Then a Mediterranean salad
with black Quinoa and
dried tomatoes, a few pages
of the new mystery and a
noon-time nap as the weather
changes; the wind picks up;
the temperature drops; rain is
on the way. All is right for
sleep as he pushes back on the
recliner and draws a deep breath.
Next to him the chocolate lab
has circled and pawed his blanket
and already fallen fast asleep.
He listens to the dog’s soft
snore hoping there won’t be
thunder to scare the dog awake,
who will then hyperventilate
spoiling both naps.
