Song for Sunday Afternoon

The magic
is in the way the sun streams
through muslin curtains
and the breeze
suggests I get up and find a sweater.

The song is laughter of children
combined with birdsong
as each day grows a little warmer,
clouds so high
they suggest soaring,
Sunday love-day, let me fly with you
and not forget tomorrow, and the next day
when I’ll jones
for your sweetness again

NaPoWriMo Day 23! Responding to “Ballad of the Morning Streets” by Amiri Baraka, for Gillena’s prompt in the Imaginary Garden: THE WAY YOU SEE IT

  5. Ah, Marian, you hit the nerves today. I too love the Spring breeze. We were just talking about kite flying, I miss flying with the kids. Mrs. Jim said, 'well, we couldn't run now to get them up' or similar. She has had a partial hip transplant and I have had a knee transplant. Guess we couldn't. Not to be totally discouraged, I told her we could wait for some really strong wind. (Like the white heron that waits every day at the little neighborhood green area running creek for a fish to come by.)
