SOLSC _ Day 24
I know the season just changed to Spring. However these cold one day warm the next has me longing for constantly warm temperatures. My mind is set on Summer. Even though I am not a fan of humidity, I do enjoy a warm sunny day.
Thinking of summer I thought of something I wrote a few years ago. I may have shared this already in a previous post, but I don’t remember and I am too lazy to go back and check.
So, if you have already read this just ignore this post. If you haven;t read this I hope you enjoy it.
In the predawn moments
With one eyelid raised she listens.
Melodious twittering enters through the open bedroom window.
One staccato voice, then another, and finally a third.
Organizing their day or
Reveling in last night’s madcap adventures?
On her way to breakfast
She glances out the dining room window.
The sun just kissing the horizon
Awakens the blossoms.
Petals slowly unfurl
Displaying their blue finery
To the observant eye.
Morning melds seamlessly into noon.
Passing by the living room window
Outside movement catches her eye.
A squirrel performing acrobatic maneuvers
Tries to free some golden kernels
Imprisoned in the wooden log house
Attached to the gnarled limb of a white birch tree. Success!
An unfamiliar sound assaults her ears.
Running to a side window
She surreptitiously looks out not knowing what she will find.
A neighbor pruning his shrubs in the sweltering heat of the day.
The hypnotic whir from the clippers
Reminds her of just how tired she is.
Contentedly, she washes her face with her right paw.
Fluffy tail curled around her body
She lazily stretches out on the windowsill
Head resting on front paws.
All is right in her world.
