Summer's Sweet Slowness

Dressed in my glossy red coat
adorned with perfect black dots,
I tip a feeler into the warm summer air.
Ahhh.
The bark feels cool and
safe beneath my bare feet.
Perfect for a slow stroll
on a summer day.

Shall I stick close to home or
spread my wings and fly?
The world offers much to explore.
Hmmm.
Which outlook will I prefer today–
comfy barkside view or
daring aerial vista?
Summer sweetness beckons.

How adorable. Thanks. I feel like I've eaten strawberries reading this, with my scarf wrapped round my neck from the tonsillitis.

Her coat looks like it's made out of enamel, doesn't it. So beautiful

Gosh!! It reminds me of my brand spanking new 'bug' with it's licence plate 'Lady'!! I think I am going to adopt this as my poem, tape it to the dash and all that!! Love, Pamela
