I Haven't Been On The Computer Lately


I haven’t been on the computer lately
The Rhododendron’s are blooming too much
And beg me to take walks to enjoy their
Purples, reds, oranges, and whites with pink tinges.
The Iris’s are begging me to see their colors
Of purple and white and yellow and maroon.
The roses are calling me to witness their beauty and scent.
The redwood forest is enticing me for another walk
To see the tiny waterfalls by the stream.
The pigeons and quail want me to see their heads bop.
The deer want to hide in the brush so I don’t notice them.
The bunnies want to hop across my path to safety.
I haven’t been on the computer lately
And maybe that isn’t such a bad thing.
