Spring is gone and summer is almost over. Only a few more weekends to wear this dress. Have you hear this song (track 2, side B). This is one of the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.
By the pool
List of things done and todo: Farmers market, Read cooking magazine by pool, Plan health meal for family and friends, Finish project with kids, Work emails, Send tax extension form. This is one of the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.
It was hot
I came home early it was hot. Flicked controls on the thermostat. Nothing worked, which way is on? Heat cause it’s hot, that doesn’t sound wrong. Open a window, fiddled with the lock, left or right, it would not pop. Sweat, just a drop. That was it for me. I did care who might see. Flung coat and sweater over my head, shed skirt and tights passed my feet, now lounge bare to enjoyed the heat. This is one of the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.
New Suit The first warm day, the air is clean. I was to long curled within, sun nibbles willing skin. I dip my toe, that’s as far as I will go. Nothing is getting wet. The suit I bought to match the lot, will wait till it is hot. I smile as the children play, enticing me to join the fray. From chattering teeth they shout ‘COME IN’, but it’s a bit too cold to swim. This is one of the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.
Fifteen minutes that’s all I get. Just time enough, time to sit. It’s just three take-five’s rolled in one. Early is on time for some. Just me, my time to breath. I see a spot and feel the breeze. The sun warm on my skin, feet in sand the cool below. Alone but soon they’ll show, In my head I’ll greet them all, “Hello, and welcome y’all”. This is one of the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.
Fly go by
Fly go by Buzz buzz a nasty thing woke me from a sun filled dream. I saw a Fly go by, so I took my top off and sent it high. I pulled and pulled till the strings went twang then I launched at that tiny thing. It took a sec I used my eye aiming carefully down the line. The Fly saw me cocking back and almost had a heart attack. With a bit of a huff the fly began to fuss. “Me!” it said, “Oh no, why would you go semi-nude, just to swat this awesome dude”. This is one …
Fields of Flowers
Fields of flowers Fields of flowers first pink and blue, I bought a suit that will sneak me through. Then today purple and yellow. I have been waiting all week things are on schedule. I bought this suit weeks ago to match a landscape, I’m not allowed to go. The bunnies will be playing ball, I will creep softly among them all. They will not see me. ‘Shh’, is what I think as one comes near. I hold my breath with hope and fear. It’s little nose sniffs the air. I feel so happy then I see… they are all staring at me. All at once they charge my way. I jump but …
