A Peaceful Day
As sunlight peeked through budding emerald leaves,
Slipping off petals and limbs with ease.
I laugh at the empty grass and gentle breeze
Threading through Mother’s hair with skillful tease.
Legs tucked beneath the shade of our dogwood trees,
I listened to Sister hum sweetly to the bees.
Without snow or ice to hinder us doing as we please,
Our little backyard was at peace until someone cut the cheese.
