back yard

the back yard beckons
in summertime

see the tomatoes on the vine
listen to the breeze through the clothes
on the line

sit in the comforting shade
chew a blade of grass
and rest your weary mind

"come on in"
it's summertime

*Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmer of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.

**In the stifling heat of a Kansas summer, i find mornings and evenings the best time for backyard musings. High humidity just isn't that comforting!!! :)
