Serene Sky

Updated on May 19, 2009

Serene sky absent airplanes

Vacant of vapor trail empty of engines

Of contrails clear and free of flyers

The very definition blue

How I love you

Green grass standing still

Leaves listless in breathless breeze

Cicadas silent animals inanimate

Brook not babbling nor songbirds singing

At peace the very air

As I love you

Shadows stretch as sun sets

Blue blackens as darkening day nears night

I love you with all my might

Fold we now passion's cushion

Picnic blanket a game of cat's cradle

Scarcely seeing each other

We walk home

Which will be

Wherever we are

Together

      There is so much beauty in the small things, yet a lot of us fail to see them.

      Things get a little strange at home

      And then everybody writes a poem.

      Thanks Ixxy
