Serenity
By Don Iannone

soft rays of summer sun
...float like yellow butterflies
......between the tall oaks
.........feeding warm light onto the sleeping calico
............curled up on the front porch swing.

Of course I just have an affection for the title of this one ;) but more than that, in such wonderful use of language you evoke a feeling of that warmth and gentleness we find in such simplicity. Beautiful, as always.

Stacey...I wish you peace and thanksgiving. Sorry about your puppy.

Iammasra...I wish you reconnectivity with that pyramid that you are and blessings on your blog.

Serenity...may yellow butterflies keep you company as you dance in the cool green grass of summer.
