5KCBWDay5 — And now for something completely different

Blog Week 2014 Banner

Blog prompt: Blog in a way different to how you normally blog.


 
A poem I wrote about ten years ago.

Sunday Afternoon, August

A row of pink crepe myrtles lines the driveway
Branches move in the soft afternoon breeze
A trumpet vine’s bright orange flowers peek
From the foliage of the ancient chokecherry
Towering above the myrtles

A mourning dove perches on a drooping electric cable
The rhythmic buzz of cicadas punctuates the clatter of keys as I type
A cheery red cardinal hops from one myrtle branch to another
Chirping, chattering at his reflection in the glass

Water beads course their way down the side
Of the tumbler; ice melts
The house is silent

Eyelids droop as naptime beckons
Close the laptop

Ceiling fan and cool cotton sheets
