Tree of Summer.
Foreword - I wrote this piece on the same day I wrote "On a Summers Bench" Inspired, not only by the fine weather on that day, but also the view of the tree which stretched out above me, and the sounds around me.
A city of leaves, stretch out above me
The branches entwining, beyond into mystery
Highways of wood, the tree of summer
Twigs moving with breezes rustle
I lay here admiring nature's artwork, summer warmth, not moving a muscle
Blue backdrop beyond, high playground for soaring
Above it all wispy cotton blankets
Disturbed only by roaring
Of children, who play, and run with cares free,
My summer summer days, stretch out before me.
