summer essence.

DSC08247The exhilaration of being outside

past bedtime in your nightgown.

Walking around and around  the coop

while the chickens flutter in.

Fairy houses made, flowers picked.

Dinner eaten.

Goodnight garden.

Goodnight all the beautiful things,

You’re never mean to me,

you say.

Tonight with the light

like midday,

we head to sleep,

all in a tumble.




keeping myself busy with the Write Alm prompts

  1. Beautiful words, Brooke! We did a sleepover under the stars in the backyard. This morning was so fresh and full of bird song. The day was a bit shaky as everyone was crazily underslept but still great once a year. Happy Solstice.
