Front Porch

Swinging, gently undulating
in the rhythm of a summer daze.
Peace bleeds through the open
fields of thought bringing a calm
that envelops. Ice melts in cool
rivulet condensation from tumbler
to side table. Flags in rapid flutter
seem to whisper in patriotic tones;
loyalty traverses every breath.
Birds in audition, warble and twit,
congruous and unpretentious.
Butterflies pursued by wide-eyed
children of wonder. And under
the overhang, hornets gang enmass
protection to a point. On the front porch,
wiling away the day in uninterrupted thought.

I would appreciate feedback on my work. If we don't learn, we'll never grow.
