Ten



Do you remember when?…
Life was so tender and skies
were azure blue and the lazy,
hazy summer evenings seem
to be made just for you.

A cool breeze flowed through
the mulberry trees, as you lie
in the tall green grass and
watched the fluffy white clouds
change shapes like white melting
glass.

The intoxicating aroma from a nearby
lilac bush, the distinctive sound of
a hummingbird in it's florescent
plumage of delight and the hues
of  brilliant color as the sun
began it's evening flight.

Night shadows appear on the garden wall,
as the crickets began their musical ball.

Your mother calls… It's time to come in!
Do you remember when you were ten?
