Carpets of Gold

Ages old, these carpets of gold.
Cover the valley floor.

Soften the scene,
The stream’s careen,
Gently, as before.

A trillion times over,
The trees did inflame,
Released their load,
Like gentle rain.

To a restless bed,
A fountain head, under the trees,
Blown about by fickle breeze.

We lie as before on this soft, warm cushion.
Making love to the water’s percussion.

As the warm sun brings a sweat of skin,
And we lie languid amid the din.

Of bees buzzing in the late afternoon.
Hurry, …Winter will come soon.

Of course I agree with the others, the work that you have presented is flawless. :) I'd also like to thank you for your comments on 'First Haircut' It was me in fact. At 43 I've overcome the abuse but I still write about it and hope that some don't feel so alone. You are a kind man. Thank you.

Warmest Regards, Janet xoxoxo
