toes ran free from socks shins bared their flanks shoulders undressed their cheeks to receive warmth’s kisses Swans passed on their water-fed passage. Yes, nodded heads in the flowerbeds, this is summer sunshine in Regent’s Park.
13 – 14 July, 2013
Enjoy the blissful summer weather, if you’re circa London-towne. Drink water; wear a hat; put on sunblock. Let your toes and shins and shoulders enjoy the sunshine. The animals and plants are all smiling at us humans, “See, they’ve finally realised that being in a park is quite the place to be.”
Put away your laptop or phone, and simply sit under a tree.
That is poetry enough.

I tweet, though less so on sunny days when I am under trees or traipsing through London’s parks. Follow me as @BeadedQuill.

you seem to understand! life simply has not occurred unless you’ve embraced the wisdom of the hammock.
Indeed! Though sadly my hammock is on the other side of the world… Grass banks will have to suffice.
