A Spot Of Summer
Author: Pondering Red


We sit on a park bench-
nibble on pizza and olives.
It has become our spot-
The pigeons seem bolder,
almost pecking at your feet.
They hang around- bob around-
Two of them lock beaks-
a pigeon kiss ?
A splatter of light rain-
small bugs high in the air-
Grass is not really cut-
honeysuckle spreading all over.
I snap a few shots of you.
It's become an obsession
a record of how your hair is growing.
Trees are huge-
generations old.
You smile- show your teeth.
It radiates you.
Peaceful to sit with you
in our summer spot.

Nice, sweet, ooo.....

"A Spot of Summer"! ooooo aaaaa! Here the crowd go wild for your beautifully written poem! This is very artistic! Your poem holds value, and I like the parts about the two birds in love, and the food.... When I read the pizza and olives, I couldn't go any further, without fixing a snack for myself.... You made me But the rest, about the snapshots, and the lovely surroundings, is just unique! I like the way your mind works! Your poem was sweeter than cotton candy! Smiles, Meridian
