Turtle Creek II

Turtle Creek II

The sky painted swirling blue and white,
green grass, newly mown.
We’re on our knees, our backs, our stomachs,
lying on towels and blankets.
Men with chests bare, women baring
legs and feet.  Our eyes closed
behind green-lensed glasses.  We inhale and listen
to the strains of radio waves rocking across Turtle Creek Park.
We laze beneath the vase shaped leaves
of elms.  Dreams we share,
as one mind. Later, I run to follow the
spinning trajectory of a frisbee thrown.
It’s a day made for us.

  1. Refreshing and real. There are times art needs to be art and be absent of the daily grind of who is right or wrong.

  2. Thank you, Richard. I am very grateful for your reading and your feedback.
