Summer feast





when summer sun climbs 

ladder of dust

cycle me to the footpath

of sea stones, shells and twigs

lake water, a flute of harmony

blue sky, scattered bed of feathers 

swans dive to catch food

i linger under shades to savor feast

of berries

  2. Your cycle route is so idyllic, Grace. We don't have a lake close by. We do have the sea but it is quit ea long ride away for me.

  3. I like the phrase, "cycle me to the footpath" showing that it's something you cannot keep from doing, to be with your dear ones in your place of sanctification.

  9. I love this:

    "cycle me to the footpath
    of sea stones, shells and twigs"

    And the ending:

    "i linger under shades to savor feast
    of berries"

  12. I can feel the breeze from the water and am jealous of a summer's repast of berries eaten in the shade.
