I Kept Writing

The bushes moved closer to see what I was writing.
I could feel them peering over my shoulder.
One of them lost a baby leaf that slid down my back.
It tickled, but I dared not move, knowing they would leave.

I smiled at the shade they were giving me.
Three bushes I had planted myself years ago.

As magical as the enchanted trees in my forest.
Many of them I had also planted.

Let’s give her room, one whispered, 
Realizing I was on to them.

I kept writing, pretending they were not alive

Thank you so much. I usually sit outside to write and things are always either sliding down my back, floating down my back or crawling up my legs and arms.

So imaginative and creative, Caren. I really like how the bushes interacted with you. It seemed so real! :) gw

It WAS real; as real as anything I usually write. Snicker. Snicker.
