More summer smiles here by the very lovely Karin Taylor

A gentle wisp takes a casual step,
a little slow, then a bit with pep.
He whistles down the garden path,
a half-known song, a tinkling laugh.
Meets strolling couple, pats their cheeks,
has more fun than he’s had for weeks.
Dances with daisies, a half pirouette,
eddies and whirlpools, a ghostly roulette.
Prods brown leaves and a little dust,
then moves on, he knows he must.
Not too hot and not too dry,
sparkling azure in the sky.
Th sun sinks low, birds fly to nest.
Blazing orange in the west.
Cool summer night will now move in,
but oh what fun the day has been.

    Thanks too Rebecca. I’m not polished, I’m far too impatient for that, but I guess that’s my style. (now I’m blushing).

    Yes I’m serious I bought a laminated print for my bedroom :) Rebecca is right you are talented. Not everyone can do all 3 things. I liked your poem and picture so much I wanted to it for my bedroom.

    Hi Anne,
    I recieved it yesterday and I like it a lot. I want to let you know that the picture and poem came out darker then what it is on here. It is a little harder to read the poem but all in all it turned out nice. I will keep it in mind about the lighting on my own projects.
