Roll Out Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer...

Sitting on the porch swing in the back yard

Cool, fresh, teasing south breeze.

Lazily swinging in a shower of tree seeds

Dandelion fluff floating by.

Trees and bushes on this side

Trees and bushes on that side

Filled with singing, talking, chattering birds.

The leaves on the trees sparkle and flutter like sequins on a flapper dress.

The neighbour's lawn mower a pleasant hum.

Lean back on the swing cushions

Eyes closed

Feeling quiet and secluded

While on the street side of the house

Life goes rushing past.


  1. Nice! Like a mini-vacation.

  2. it was a high of 10 today. its rainy and very very cold. its supposed to be cold again tomorrow. i think we'll be lucky to get one month of summer...
