my perfect day

thanks kim for asking me to write “my perfect day”
since i truly believe anyone can make any day perfect
~because it’s a choice~ well, i know i’ve already lived hundreds of them
and for that i am grateful.


as the cool air reaches into my recently opened bedroom window

it drugs me and forces me back to bed


only after it fluffs my pillow and gently kisses my forehead


upon rising a few hours later

i see that mother nature is entertaining me today with animal shaped clouds


i pray that somebody else notices them



i walk quickly towards the boardwalk and as the ocean waves good morning to me

i can tell she’s been waiting patiently for me to arrive

so that her cold salty water self can play tag with my ankles

back home

even though it’s way past my breakfast

my hot cup of tea refuses to be left behind

so it’s the two of us that decide to cut and bring in


yellow flowers


since the red ones got the invitation


after a few pages in my slightly dirty summer read

have been soaked in to the point of coloring my cheeks to a perfect shade of pink


hugs from all my loved ones have warmed my heart

i set off for a drive in hopes of trespassing

someplace new

where the cows want to come closer than their electric fence will allow


the ivy covered barns

beg me to stare


“it’s okay

everyone does”


when evening falls and i’m being kept warm by the arms of my lover


we watch the fireflies


in the grass where the butterflies sleep

i know that i have been blessed

once again

with another

“perfect day”


oh beth... really truly thank you.  what more can i say?
LOVE.... truly LOVE.



you can find Beth here:  
Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Taken & Ruby Luna's
