all on a summer’s day

I placed my feet in water
that sprang from sacred ground

the stones like silent counsellors
my wife and child stood round

some part of me I left there
it being so hot that day

the things that we remember
as memory falls away

a life as soft as water
a pillow where I lay

a pool along the wayside
all on a summer’s day

  1. What a pleasant surprise. It has been so long. It’s ironic actually. I was going to find your last blog posting and wish you a Merry Christmas. I am so glad to see a new one. Hope all is well. Seasons Greetings from my side of the pond to yours.
