Warmth & Brightness
Breezes & Thunder

Dandelion dot-to-dot
In everyone’s yard

Birds texting each other above
Flowers competing for visiting suitors

The sun bearing down
Ice fighting for its life in my plastic tumbler

Opportunistic bugs – carpe diem
Old dogs fast asleep in what used to be shade

Beauty at play
It’s Nature’s recess


While I’ve never claimed to be a poet, I do enjoy word pictures and a few of them seemed to string themselves together for me today.

There’s no rhyme, no meter in the couplets above, but they do have a bit of a lilt – sort of – if you have an imagination.

I just got carried away with the beauty of the afternoon I guess. Enjoy.
