Summer View

Two poems of summer's joys, an ocean view and a woodland's view, both great points of observation but it is the simplicity of life that bring the greatest pleasures....

Over the Bay

Come, take my hand,
We will go to the sea,
Where the green grass rolls to the shore.

On the blue-sky wings of memories,
Flying free, up to clouds we will soar.
To the harbor of yesterday...
Beyond our dreams-
And August's sun-filled days.

Woodland Home

In the soft morning light,
The trees at each window stand guard.
Gently on sunrise the new day begins.

There is no hurry...
The teapot awaits with silenced whistle.

Out on the porch,
The bird feeders, hungrily emptied
By chipmunks and squirrels-
Who twitch their tails
At the blue jay's noisy complaint,
And I smile...

Oh Delicia, to sit in that chair, looking out at the bay, this is a slice of paradise... Your imagery wraps around me like a comforting shawl... What a gift you have my dear friend.

Hello again my friends... I have been off again, visiting my children...but now all nestled back home again,:o) with my 4 year old granddaughter here for the weekend... would be a fun time to bake those blueberry pies, but I haven't seen the blueberry stands pop up yet at the sides of the road, so it may be just a bit to early, speaking of early, we noticed on my return our front yard has already a splattering of red leaves tossed upon it... amazingly soon to be seeing them, maybe it is a sign of a early fall, that would be alright with me, it is my favorite time of the year...Gee I am going to have to change the title of add a comment on my page to rambles from me(O: The main point of my rambles being...I appreciate your kindness and lovely comments, I always look forward to reading them!:0)
