WEEKEND VACATION


WEEKEND VACATION

IN THE CHAIR

BY THE WATER

LISTENING TO THE WAVES

AND THE BIRDS

FLYING OVER HEAD

SWALLOWS

FLYING IN AND OUT

DOWN LOW

AND BACK UP

AGAIN

WATCHING THE

FIELD OF GRASS

WITH THE MORNING

DEW SHINING

AND FRESHLY CUT

IN MY NOSE

TREES ALL AROUND

AND THE BLUE GREY

SKY

IN THE DAY

AS IT HEATS UP

THE WONDERFUL

FRESHLY MADE MINT TEA

KEEPS ME COOL

AND REFRESHED

I HEAR ALL THE KIDS

RUNNING AND PLAYING

AND ALL THE PEOPLE

SOCIALIZING

FROM THE WARRIORS

HITTING EACH OTHER

TO THE SPINNERS WINDING

THEIR YARN

TO THE MERCHANTS

AND THE CONSTANT

WIFFS OF

THE FOOD BEING MADE

IN THE TENT

NEXT TO ME

WHILE I SHOW PEOPLE

HOW TO DRAW

A CELTIC SPIRAL

OR KEY PATTERN

LATER I HEAR

THE AXES HIT THE WOOD

AND THE FACT

NOW I KNOW HOW

TO MAKE

A VIKING WIRE NECKLACE

IF I WANT

TO THE COLD COLD

SHOWER

AND OFFER TO GO

IN THE LAKE WITH

A FRIEND

BUT TURN IT DOWN

CAUSE LAKES

AND ME

DON'T GET ALONG

SITTING DRINKING COFFEE

AND EATING A CHOCOLATE

MUFFIN IN THE MORNING

CLOSE MY EYES

AND TURN MY HEAD

UP TO THE SKY

AND

TAKE IN ALL THE SENSES

HAVE TO OFFER

EVEN WHEN

THE DRIP DRIP DRIP

OF RAIN STARTING

FALLING DOWN ON MY FACE

THERE IS NOTHING

LIKE IT

THE NATURE ALL AROUND

AND THE HARMONY

OF US

THERE HUMANITY

BLENDING

AND WITH RESPECT

AND CHILVARY

IS NOT DEAD

A KNIGHT AND DUKE

OFFERED TO CARRY

MY CHAIR BACK

AFTER WATCHING ME

DRAG IT WITH ONE HAND

SMILE

SIGH

THE CRACKLING OF

THE FLAMES

AND THE SHIFTING

OF THE WOOD

IN THE FIREPIT

WHILE FRIENDS

SING AND TELL STORIES

SHARE THEIR

BAUDY MOMENTS

AND GEEKNESS

SO DID I FEEL

LIKE I BELONGED

TO THE LADY

THAT READ MY TAROT

AND GAVE

FREE WINE

EVEN IF IT WAS

ALMOST TOO SWEET

TO DRINK

I SIPPED IT THROUGH

THE NIGHT HOURS

THEN WATCHED

THE OTHERS GATHER

THEMSELVES

AND GO TO THEIR TENTS

WITH THERE OTHERS

AND SIGH

OFF I DECIDED

TO GO

TO MINE

ALONE AS ALWAYS

YET NOT FEELING

ALONE FEELING

SO ALIVE

AND HAPPY

AND VERY RELAXED

TALKING TO PEOPLE

I DON'T NORMALLY

CHAT WITH WAS

WONDERFUL

AND HANGING

OUT WITH MY FRIENDS

I DO KNOW

EVEN BETTER

THANKS TO MY

BEST FRIEND

FOR THE MEDS

TO HELP THE

HEADACHE

GO AWAY

AND THE TEA

THAT KEEPED

ME FLOWING

AND THE OTHER

FRIEND

THAT OFFERED

WATER OVER

AND OVER CAUSE

IT WAS SO HOT!

TO ALL THE SMILES

AND NODS

AND JUST CONTENTED

BLESSED BLISS

SO WONDERFUL

I SO DO MISS

THIS

EVEN THE SERVICE

CHORES

ARE ALL WANTED

AND NOT MINDED

CAUSE I FEEL

APART OF SOMETHING

AND NOT

SEPARATED

IN THE DISTANCE

I HEAR THE CLANGING

OF THE FORGE

AND METAL

IT BEGS ME

TO GO SEE

I DON'T HOWEVER

CAUSE I GET

DISTRACTED

BY MY FRIENDS

KID WE TICKLE

AND PLAY TAG

AND GOOF AROUND

FINALLY HE

ACKNOWLEDGED ME

FOR THE END OF

THE EVENT SMILE

GOES TO SHOW

HE HAD A GOOD TIME

FROM THE JOKES

AND MEMORIES

TO THE CHANGING

OF THE KEY THROWING

AT THE ALLTHING

TO A WELL DESERVING FRIEND

TO RELEASE IT

FOR ITS ONLY SUPPOSED

TO BEEN IN HER

HANDS FOR TWO YEARS

HOWEVER

IT HAS BEEN SIX

AND GAINING

MY OWN OFFICE

WHICH WILL

MEAN I

WRITE MORE

LOL

THESE MOMENTS

ARE GREAT

EVEN AT NIGHT

DARK AND

THE ONLY BATHROOMS

ARE ALL THE

WAY ACROSS

THE FIELD AWAY

FROM CAMP

SO IN THE DARK

I GO

LOOKING AS I CAN

AND FEELING SAFE

NO WORRIES

ON MY MIND

IN THE DEEP

NIGHT SKY

THE STARS ARE ALL

SHINING BRIGHT

AND I CAN HEAR

THE BATS OVERHEAD

THEN BACK DOWN

THE TRAIL

BACK TO BED

IN THE LIGHT OF

DAWN

I GATHER

TO GO AGAIN

AND THIS TIME

I SEE THE RAVENS

CALLING TO

EACH OTHER

A GREAT WAY

TO END OUT

THE WEEKEND

ONLY DOWN FALL

IS I HAVE

TONS OF BUG BITES

LOL

IT WAS SO

NEEDED

AND NOTHING BUT

LOVE AND FRIENDS

ALL AROUND.
