One lemon(y) afternoon


Grace @ Everyday Amazing


I found tran-
quil(i)ty on bed
of lemon-tarred leaves,
zest-stirred by autumn breeze

My eye-
lids drooped
to slow tick-tock-chuck 
of warm sun(shine) un-ra-vel-- i --- n----- g

  14. Very nicely done Grace--I would fail if there were no such thing as broken lines. This topic would also look good as a haiku.
