Laughing in a meadow
On a warm summer day.
Picking field daisies,
Making wild bouquets.

Walking hand in hand
Basking in the sun.
Stirring up the grasses,
Setting butterflies on the run.

Catching little ladybugs,
Counting all their spots.
"Look at this on Baby,
This one sure has lots."

Listening to the pine needles
Crunch beneath our feet,
As we reach the timberline.
This picnic is such a treat.

Some crackers and some cheese,
A bottle of vintage wine.
A gentle breeze a-dancing
On a day that's so divine.

A soft and gentle touch,
A gaze, a loving kiss.
A whispered "I love you"
A wonderful day this is.

We laugh and act like children
On a day oh so sublime.
A day of love to add to others.
A day of whimsy and of wine.

THANKS WILD CHILD
on a winter day
of cold and freezing rain
your words brought me back
to that warm summer day
I can smell the flowers
and feel the rays so
pass the lotion
my notions in motion!

ROFL at Paul's response.

Wildchild...I love the simplicity of feelings in this one...almost reminded me of puppy love. It brought a nice rush of warm memories. Well done

Paul...love your reply...notion in motion indeed lol

Hoot owl...Puppy love is a wonderful thing after being married for 15 years. I'm glad we still got it.

Severn...thank you. It means alot when a poet I respect replies. But then again I respect all of you in your talent.

WildChild, this piece poetically induces the fragrant textures of nature, love and sentiment. Very nice!

The snow is falling but do I care
I have your poem that I can share
A dream perhaps at this time of year
But you brought me back to summer dear
It flows with gentle touch
Yes I do love this poem "Thank you so much"

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

HUGS

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.
