A summer garden in Barnsley
I sit in quiet and see the sunlight speckling through a magnolia tree.
I close my eyes and hear the buzzing song of a honey bee.
I listen to the tunes of the starlings and blackbirds choir.
I see the buzzards soaring over in the summer sky go higher and higher.
I sit in awe and relax to contemplate.
My mind and my heart join to explore this fascinating state.
A subtle breeze over the lilac tree.
Sends an aroma of intoxicating beauty over me.
I watch the beetle climb the wall.
I see the red admiral come to call.
I watch my cat sniff the scented air.
I feel more alive sitting still in this golden lighted air.
I take a sip of my Yorkshire tea.
I feel a deep and rewarding sense of serenity.
