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
The cloudless blue sky
peeks in through the tops
of the tall, slender poplars,
spying on the scene below
