Hot Summer Day

 

The rustle of ivy

against a cool brick wall.

Wisteria and clematis

spider out

of hanging baskets

on a white-washed porch.

Lazy kittens stretch

in shady sunshine

licking their paws

beside a cistern

of rain water.

Mozart

is subdued

by a whirring fan.

Hey Patricia,

This poem reminds me a lot of some of the summer days I had growing up. Lazy days, just hanging around doing nothing, but watching everything. Lots to learn, and great memories to revisit.

Well done.

Tim
