carpet (Free verse) by thing1
barefoot in the summertime lounging on the couch listening to Sparrow Kitchener Jam Band and Bob Marley the sun comes in through the window at the top of the entertainment unit tunneling to the love seat under the kitchen table a thick august air fills the family room with a pine fresh scent which flows into each pore of four patio screens humid sticky air bounces off the soft carpet and through the kitchen railing tiny orioles spending this season in my brown birdhouse whisper sweet songs in my ear getting up to do a little dance to the kitchen to get a cherry popsicle from the freezer going down the purple plush in between my toes as the tingling feeling lingers while i lie back on the couch listening to Sparrow Kitchener Jam Band and Bob Marley eating my cherry popsicle barefoot in the summertime

Up the ladder: Lost Girl
