I am in the Mood

Happy Summer Day

Source

I am in the mood

for a lazy summer day

curling up with a good book

dipping my toes in a cold river

painting my nails under a starry sky

chatting away

about nothing in particular.


Spending my time

as if I had forever

eating some cherries

walking to the ice cream shop

bopping to my ipod

and carried by a lonely air.


I am in the mood

for watching a good movie

abandoned by no cares

sealed by sweet memories

of childhood days

and simple joys.


Hanging with my kitty cat

adopting a stray dog

touching wetnoses

planting sunflower seeds

splashing in the kiddy pool.


I am in the mood

for taking a trip

with the wind in my hair

miles of road ahead

embraced by the sun.
