Sunlight plays on the garden
where tiny bees gather nectar.
I watch as they sip from all the flowers,
taking hours to get their fill.
It takes me far away
from the things that trouble me.
Life slows down for just a while,
I have to smile and remember when.
Teddy bear clouds dance on the wind,
float through the air and gone.
That was a summer to never forget,
never regret the growth of my soul.
Even as my Mom called to me
a time for dinner, then to bed.
The day was through,
goodnight to you, you flew on.
