|Day 21 of 31 at TWT!|
So, today's post is brought to you... from my backyard! (Thank goodness for wi-fi!)
Put on my comfy shorts
Slip on my pink sandals
Refill the bird feeder
Drag out the old, rickety chaise lounge
(the one with the paint
off the arms)
Grab my laptop and
s t r e t c h
out my bare legs,
my in sunlight
wiggle toes the
Breathe in flowers and grass and warmth
Listen to birds chirping and
and the neighbors mowing,
bouncing balls, zooming cars.
Dogs bark cheerfully, their chains
jingling as they run in their yards.
A jet rummmmbles by through the blue sky.
A red flash;
a cardinal swoops into the pine tree.
The gentle breeze ruffles the grass.
A red-wing blackbird I can't see
calls to me from a distant branch.
A dainty white butterfly flutters across the yard.
Summertime in the spring
in my backyard.
