Sunflower

007_wm

Burst of yellow petals,

Mindless green leaves

Seeds tucked away

For feathery thieves.

Tall and slender

It rises above

Towering over the garden

With motherly love.

Sunshine smile

Rises in a sky of blue

Perfecting the backyard panorama

Like no other floral will do.

Afternoon Showers

 
rain porch

 

 

 

 

I like to sit on solar deck
In rain showers
Like a poem the rain drops peck
Refresh powers
Unwind my mind, relax my brain
The serene anthem of the rain
Sings a song baptizing flowers
In rain showers

 

I toss tired feet upon the rail
Sneak a slight rest
Raindrops splashing into the pail
Afternoon’s best
Rain pelts a ballad on the roof
Sun porch leaves me feeling aloof
I could sit veiled for countless hours
In rain showers

 

 In rain showers

Like a poem the rain drops peck

Refresh powers

While I sit on solar deck

In rain showers

Sings a song baptizing flowers

Relax my brain

The serene anthem of the rain

In rain showers

I toss tired feet upon the rail

Toes are dowsers

Raindrops splashing into the pail

Afternoons’ best

While stealing rest

Drips drops on deck

Like a poem the rain drops peck
