My Favorite Things

Summer nights; spilling honeysuckle fragrance, lit with soft white-diamond stars, reflected in my eyes. Crickets song; chirping serenade of attraction, soothing a simple-born girl, taking pleasure. Harvest moon; big orange shining full on velvet, ushering Autumn's change-all season, makes my spirit smile. Child's laughter; innocent mirth ringing true, changing times of dog-tired days, leaving me refreshed. Days passing; memories held in fragile mind, shards of thoughts re-shaping life, calling back the moments. My life; convinced the moments count, too scarce the time for second-sight, treasuring my favorite things.
