A Peaceful Moment

Life explodes
like a big bang
in this perfect moment;
The warm sun pours in
sideways through the trees,
spreading across the
freshly cut lawn like an
old basking dog;
The smell of cut cedar
carries upon the warm
afternoon wind as the
April leaves chatter
like small children;
A pair of doves waddle
about, in search of
insects while two
puppies combat playfully
over a piece of rope;
White petals trickle down
in the breeze from
wild blossoming branches,
mimicking tiny
butterflies;
The cloudless blue sky
peeks in through the tops
of the tall, slender poplars,
spying on the scene below
