My Day in the Sun

Towering spires of poplar trees
Swaying gently in the breeze
Airplanes flying way up high
Leaving trails across the sky
Blue and cloudless here today
Makes me want to sit and stay
Flower seeds go drifting by
With a yellow butterfly

Birds are silent ~ strangely so
Far too warm for them I know
I wonder where they go all day
Waiting for the sun to go away?
And so in silence here I sit
Freeing all my thoughts to flit
Counting blessings every one
On my day here in the sun
