A Day of Contentment

Daydream by Jane Sutherland, c 1895
(Oil on Canvas)

A gentle summer rain has ended
The sun peaks through pillows
Crystal drops hang like tennis bracelets
On deep green, chartreuse and moss covered leaves
A symphony of birds singing
Pretty, pretty, pretty
Accompanied by the cicada’s hum
The air is soft

Touched with moisture
The warmth penetrates my skin
It is a slow day
A day made entirely of daydreams
A day to thrive

A day of contentment
