OUR FAVORITE SPOT

Our Favorite Spot
by Denise



Our favorite spot is waiting for us where
We sit and stare across the pond, letting the  
Warmth and peace surround us, as comfortable 
As a warm blanket on a chilly night.




But for now we sit and listen to the sounds of summer.
The birds chirp in the trees, the frogs croak on their 
Lilypads, and we watch as a turtle swims to the surface.
The dragonflies dash here, there, occasionally resting
For a second or two, which may seem like
A lifetime in their world but a moment in ours. 

We experience a moment of peace as we sit 
In our world, a lifetime in theirs. 
I wish it so in yours.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.
