Just Sitting On The Wall That's All

I Am Catching A Cool Breeze

As I watch life around me

Fascinating as it may be

I feel like I am going to sneeze but it escapes me

I am just sitting on this wall made of old rock and stone

That has been standing straight for years silent and alone

I come here to enjoy life from the view

Not too high up not too low either

Just perfect where I can lift my feet off the ground

I can dangle them back and forth without a care

I can hum or whistle

I can hear the birds chirp as if I was one of them

I can see a chipmunk make his way up along the walls edge

Only to disappear then to reappear one more time later

Butterflies on occasion will pass by

There is a sound of a car I can hear in a distance but when or if it will come my way I only patiently wait

I see the sun shine bright

I see the rain hit so light almost as if in slow motion

I wait to see if you will walk my way

Then we can sit together and share what I learned here today

Occasionally a bug will pester me with it's power

For I know it is only looking for a flower

So I just sit here and listen to the story in my mind unfold

How a young boy grew up to become so old

He not only loves life but all the people in it

Each persons experiences so thrilling like a new best selling novel that just hit the book shelves

I can't wait to read and here the words play over and over in my head

They dance from place to place without a care

Because I know one thing for certain

This wall has been here for years and has seen so much

If I listen long enough

It may share it's beauty with one simple touch

I love stonewalling, and that is what I imagined you sitting on.

Words of wisdom as always from you, but you really are special in your optimism.

Your sunny outlook on life is amazing.

Thank you x

Movie Master I am so glad to see you.Please tell your friends.Todays weather is warm and sometimes I hear the crickets sending their love.You can see the different shadows across the wall from huge trees that reach to the sky.They look like dancing clowns emerging from the rock.Each clown is a mime that doesn't say a sound but is so much fun to be around.Have a wonderful and special day.
