Well hello again. I'm slowly working my way through Brenda's weekly themes and I've finally grasped ahold of this beautiful sunshine to come up with something for Blue.
Summer still has a firm grip here in Ohio and while I love it, I think I'm ready to embrace Autumn. My son has been back to school for almost two weeks now and many in our area are also back in the classroom. For a small few, the final days of vacation are coming to an end as they'll be starting next week.
All of this had me thinking back on my own summer vacations, spending the majority of it under the sun with my nose in a book. My mind was always halfway around the world or on a fictional planet, but I also loved staring up at the clouds. Truth be told, I still do.
And so, I present to you a new poem.
I hope you enjoy reading it. As always, a big thank you to Brenda!
The soft blades
tickle my skin
a gentle breeze
caresses my hair
warm rays offer
an inviting kiss
and closing my eyes
I can almost feel you here
holding my hand
a carefree afternoon
floating through the cerulean heavens
for each fluffy, white cloud we pass.
But that's just child's play
and the beautiful petals
of our royal crowns
have long since wilted and died.
But the charming birds
keep on singing
a sweet serenade
for anyone willing to listen
and now I have nothing but time.
So I'll stay
lay right here
