A Few Summer Moments

A Few Summer Moments

A pair of chairs. A table.
A porch a bit too close to the road,
complete with floorboards that need painting,
but maybe not this year.

A little sanctuary. A place to read.
A place to talk. A glass of wine.
A lover in the other chair.
A cat on the table.

A perfection too simple for words.
Too profound for photographs,
all missing the peace a few summer moments
can bring.

About this poem.

I stumble on this picture of my front porch this morning and got all nostalgic for summer. That is all.
