Sitting on the swing, and swinging, with Peggy
half asleep and full of bliss
and thinking about something I may have never
thought about before —except maybe in English class
back in the distant days of schooling.
In a daydreaming state, defying description,
except for some beautiful words:
words with lovely meanings of warmth and comfort
and a glorious state of well-being.
Getting to an upright position, from such a lap of luxury,
after napping on a swing on the last day of Summer
is a fete of accomplishment in itself!
limbs sleeping and creaking
glad to be alive!
(Here’s a Wikipedia post that is a must for people who like Gerunds and the like.)
…they all fit my Mind’s Eye, in my cranium
always blooming when I see’um…
they never bring tedium
Imagination—my favorite medium!
After the Rain….before the grass turned green again. We call this growth of mushrooms a Fairy Ring. This is a half-ring, with other parts in the semi-circle. in place but not complete. I don’t know what kind of mushrooms they are, probably not edible. My late husband used to gather wild mushrooms, including huge round puff-balls, some as large as a soccer ball.
