The rockers, unselfish with their soothing rhythm,
join the sun’s rays in massaging into deep relaxation
It is only us who breathe in the simplicity of this place,
except for an occasional visit from stunning, fluttering wings
This moment, where a whispering breeze glides in-between us,
is where we talk and listen – but most of all, we take it all in

Lauren, this is beautiful and I can’t help quoting you:
” This moment, where a whispering breeze glides in-between us,
is where we talk and listen – but most of all, we take it all in”
Yes,, to take the beauty in is most important. It fills us with light.
Thanks so much for your lovely comment, Miriam. I also like what you said about the beauty filling us with light. That is the uplifting part about nature and all it offers to us if we only take the time out of our busy schedules and routines. 🌻
It’s nice to have a quiet place where you can relax and take it all in.
It sure is and I’m ready to go there now. 🙂
The perfect sanctuary! Enjoy, Lauren.
Thanks, Jill! This is one of the nice aspects of spring and summer. 🙂
To be able to stop and just relish the moment is a gift. Lovely, Lauren.
It definitely is a gift – taking time to “stop and smell the roses.” Thanks so much, Audrey! 💓
Reblogged this on John Cowgill's Literature Site.
Thanks again, John! I’m glad you liked this enough to share. Have a good evening.
You are welcome again, and I hope that you have a great evening too.
I have a place like that in my back yard and down by the lakes surrounding this village where there is an abundance of wild bird life. It’s very calming to just take the time to listen to nature.
Your place sounds wonderful, Ian, and being near water is so relaxing, too. Enjoy the serenity!
What a lovely, relaxing image in this, Lauren. I could feel it all, and hear the occasional fluttering wings. Beautiful! ❤️
Thanks so much, Betty! We often go to this little corner in our backyard and it’s so calming. I’m glad the seasons have changed so we can do this. I’m sure you have similar spots up north. Hope you’re having a good day. Tomorrow is Friday, Yay! Sending hugs, my friend…❣🌻
Yes, we have two such “corners” in our yard – perfect places to sit in the sun among the flowers.
How’re your sunflowers doing, btw?
Happy weekend to you – hope you have a relaxing one! Hugs 💕💞😊🌸
Your corners sound lovely, too. Our sunflowers are growing, so they’re doing well. No blooms yet, though. I’ll share pics once they get to that point. Happy weekend to you, too. So glad it’s here. 🙂 We’re going to our local town festival, which is an annual tradition and always fun. Have a good one, also! Love and hugs! ❤🎉🌷🎵
Delightful relaxing words Lauren, actually the imagery could be considered a little mesmerizing.
Beautiful post my friend.
Thanks, Ian, for your wonderful words. It was a mesmerizing moment at the time and I hope for many more. 🙂 Wishing you some quiet, calming moments, too, my friend…
Sounds lovely… 😊
Thanks, Iris, it is a calming place to relax…❤
Powerful words there, Lauren, dear friend.
We live in an apartment but the tree right outside the window – a tall tree – fills with birds all day long and especially in the mornings and evenings. I cannot resist taking time out of my writing, just so I can relish the bird song.
Reading your words, you have a similar lovely corner.
Thanks so much, Eric, and your tall tree with the bird song sounds just as lovely. Have a wonderful day, my friend…
Just discovered your lovely poetry. Thank you for sharing them.
Thank you so much, Evelyn, and I hope you continue to enjoy. I’ll visit you this afternoon, and have a lovely day. 🌷
Lauren, this is absolutely lovely! Everyone needs that special spot where they can unwind and smell the roses. Love and hugs, my dear friend. 💖💖
Aww, thanks, Michelle, and I agree. It’s nice to have a special place to unwind and simply be. Love and hugs to you, too, my friend. 💗🌷
Clearly a delightful spot.
It definitely is, Ben. And it’s where we can watch the finch nest. There are 4 eggs, but no babies, yet. 🙂
A watched pot never boils? 😛
Sounds so beautiful and relaxing even from afar!😄 Enjoy your charming corner, Lauren! ❤
It is a nice place to be. Thanks, Sarah, and Happy Friday! Hugs 🤗❤️
indeed a charming corner,a haven to pump energy,a perfect retreat for the human soul!
Nice to see you posting again,dear Lauren!Love hugs;enjoy your sumertime 🙂 ❤
Thanks, Doda, and it’s great to see you too! I’ve actually been active again since last fall but wasn’t receiving your notifications. So, after some coercion with WP, they’re finally appearing again. Anyway, I’m behind on reading blogs because of our son’s college graduation festivities. But I’ll be over again soon. Hope all is well! Love and hugs back. 😊❤️🦋
