At Ease

Brenda Bryant



Picture yourself, a book in hand,
(Something light, you understand),
Finding this pathway in the shade,
Rambling through a leafy glade.
Hear the birdsong in the air;
See butterflies flitting everywhere;
Feel a breeze upon your face;
Forget that tiresome human race!
An old stone wall has met your eye;
You simply cannot pass it by.
Rest upon it; take your ease;
Hear the hum of passing bees.
Open up your book and read!
A joyous afternoon indeed!
More mood music here:

See tomorrow's blog for fiery immortality.

Am reading one short story of O'Henry every night before I sleep. Would love to take the book and read it in this lovely place.

What a lovely place to walk, to read, to just enjoy! Marvelous capture and lovely shadows and, as always, the perfect words! Enjoy your weekend -- or what's left of it!

The path brings us into the much needed shade on a hot day. Yet not only does one cool off here, we are compelled to view the flora of many shapes and the elegant shadows left by the plants. A place to read a bokk or merely contemplate the beauty of nayure

I'm afraid if I took a book I would fall asleep and miss all the sights and sounds and smell all around, I'd better leave the book at home, I'm too easily distracted!!!

Simply beautiful!!!
