Time Out

Leaves pull glitter from the sun
Stifling heat of midday fades to cool

Ripples on the lake move slowly
to a silent wind’s sonata

Ducks chase and mate
nestle in a feathered pile

Garnish lakeside campsite
with purpled heads and orange-toed webs

Alone time I grasped for
lightens weight of things undone

Patience keeps them
waiting without fuss

Demanding inner child
now rests her discontent

embraces water’s calling
to be calm and grateful

for a place named home
Jean E. Taddonio

  1. wow. Great first line. I love that the sun is sort of bleeding glitter in a sense.
