Kenia asked us to write about Sundays.  I thought of my childhood Sundays. There was a regimented  routine, church,  lunch and a long drive.   My Sundays now have a different rhythm-but there is always a peaceful ease about them, when the afternoon arrives.


Sunshine tickles me
green wisdom whistles
I pour courage as
muffled voices
n' feet shuffle
 gate opens my
gray garden
Thanks Earl...

Blueberry pillows piled with syrup
saturate mood
I curl up cat like as hound
hovers for his treat
Let's go-honks military mad man
home improvement wishes and 
Iced coffee dreams

Muse hides
Never on a Sunday do I paint
sepia plates of strawberry 
Music blares
daughter singing Cameo Lover
I join in
folding clothes
I decorate my beagle
he chases me until indigo curtain
Constellation court opens
flag of memories rise
waiting for next Saturday.

Your poem engages all the senses so well. I love that your beagle shares the chores.

The bra broke a strap in the dryer-so I tossed it and it landed on our lovable hound- of course I rearranged it and took a photo-

Oh my God, love this slice of life at your house, the singing, the military madman, and the dog with the bra on his head just cracked me up........
Ella said…
Sherry-I had to go there-lol!
He didn't mind and we took it right off. Silly rules for now in April's madness~

Your dog looks like a "blond" Princess Leia and I think Sundays sound wonderful at your house.
