A Summer Afternoon

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub
Open Link 199 – and summer break (Posted by Bjorn)

A light summer breeze
cooling my arms,
under shade of tree

Lounging on chair
or canopied swing
whose sway lifts my hair,
while finches sing.

Glass of chilled white wine
or Vodka-tonic on ice
with slices of lime.
Voila! Paradise.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  2. I so love your paradise. Mine would include a tall glass of iced sweet tea!

    It doesn’t take much to make paradise. I’d probably want the iced tea as well in today’s heat.


  4. Sigh. The wonder of a summer evening such as you describe. That vodka tonic sounds wonderful. Here’s to you, Sara.
