January

It’s probably climate change,
Debatable to some.
Digital digits
climb to seventy –
a perfect number
for July,
but not for January
where plump raindrops
should be soothing
the gardens.
Still…
The sun fades into an inky sky.
The moon enters on cue.


Listen…


Shh…


On the hilltop, lights wink
as if to say hello.
The grill hisses,
while Chardonnay sips
allowing muscles to loosen,
thoughts to calm –
Saturday night
contentment.

Into the Country

on the way back roads

It was
a perfect day
for cruising
on open roads,
for watching
the cows
watch us
as we paused
for a moment
to warm our faces
from the sun’s
late entrance,
and to relish
in life’s
simple joys

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! ❤

Saturday – Acrostic

Sunrise calls early, an

alarm, golden, intense

tickling with its rays, sending an

undercurrent to venture outside and

renew spirits with beauty surrounding,

diving into soothing ocean’s song,

abandoning heavy burdens in mind,

yesterday becoming today’s gift
