A Late Summer Scene

I stand still and silent,
My eyes are closed but I can picture in my head,
What I would see in this late summer scene.

I can hear the young children screaming and shrieking at play,
The squeaks of the playground slides, swings and see-saws,
The gentile gossiping of girls,
The angry football cries of boys,
The gentle chuckles of old men a women trading tales.

I can feel the smooth, soothing warmth of the suns last few rays,
The soft blades of grass beneath my feet and between my toes,
A soft summer wind runs its fingers through my hair.

A smiles plays across my lips as a graceful sense of calm falls upon me.

I am brought out of my trance by the sound of my phone,
I answer it and hear the most angelic voice.

The only way this day would be become better was if the owner of this voice was with me,
As I think this a pair of hands slides around my waist and a head rests on my shoulder.
I know that touch and that scent.

We stand in silence for a second, a minute, an hour,
Who knows?  
He is with me, 
making this day pure bliss and perfection.

    Smile ~ "Ahh, The Near Perfect Summer Scene, Brushed Beautifully & Tenderly, By A Very Gifted & Lovely Poetess" ~ "Hello Dear Precious & Talented Hazel Jackson!!!" ~ And "Yes," I do agree that the one thing which would make this dreamscape of a beautiful portrait You have painted here is that, the love perhaps of "Your Lovely Life" were within Your arms and You, wrapped warmly inside of his own ~ "A Beautiful Poem Amid A Beautiful Dream" ~ ....Cont:)
