Our summer season is beginning to turn toward fall, a change we see with days getting a little bit shorter and shadows getting a little bit longer as the sun's angle begins to shift with the season.
It is also a wonderful time to take advantage of afternoon cat-naps in a hammock or lawn chair, drifting away and sleeping soundly under the still warm sun, surrounded by the soft seasonal breezes.
In honor of the season's transitions, I hope you enjoy the poem below.
A Day To Dream
A day to dream
cradled safe in the arms of a favorite chair
kept only by the playful shadows
that were and were not there
Comforted by the gentle blanket
of a breeze
along with a bit of music
the lullaby of the leaves
Under the watchful eye
of the sun
Visible and invisible
her companion light
Amidst these scenes in suspended hue
time could not resist
with the playful shadows trying to hide
from the blue
Too soon was the time to return to
Cradled and Comforted
Asleep beside this mother
A child of the universe and the Holy
who spoke it there
Having everything I could need.
For the Support of Your Life
For the Many Sides of Life
