Idle Time

A lazy summer afternoon

Spent lounging on my deck

Where sheltered shadows stirred

And regal petunias purred.


With languorous eyes I’d follow

The twinkling dragonflies

Dance a trancing tango

O’er the grassy slope below.


‘Twas delightful doing nothing –

Sitting there, thoughts adrift

With youthful dreams of yore

And unfailing hopes restored. 


I lingered ‘til the sunset’s glow

Deepened the eastern sky

And unveiled new delights

From the jewelled starry night.
