Backyard oasis

Lofty trunks reach for the sky,

displaying their rich greens of maple.

Flutterbys dance as I pull the weeds

from the earth

Dirt gathers beneath my fingernails

Aromas of oregano and lavender

Magenta buds peek out of the ends of branches,

the beginning their symphony of color.

Gentle crinkly sounds of leaves in the breeze,
act as nature’s wind chimes.

The hammock gently sways as my senses take in

this summer afternoon
