By Neal Crook

During my morning meditation
I notice cracks
In our recently repaired stone walls
Some hairline
Others deeply etched

What is the cause
Our home precariously perched upon a hill
Settling into complacency
Perhaps an angry door-slam

I rummage through my tool box
Some recently acquired
A few in need of WD-40
I apply spackle
Sand the roughness and paint

Once again
I achieve an appearance of renewal

“I recently relocated from hectic Los Angeles to serene Cambria, California. Many of my poems are inspired by the beauty of the central coast. My life filled with gratitude in a world of chaos is daily inspiration.” – the writer
