A Summer Day - Poem by Billy Loving

A day like any other
Nothing special, just another
Sun is shining above
Type of day I love
Wind in the trees
A pleasing breeze
Warmth on my skin
Serenity within
Hummingbird stops and stares
It's presence, it declares
Beating of the wings
Request it brings
I raise my finger and point
It's direction, I appoint
Off it goes
It's direction it has chose
Nectar I share
As I recline in my chair
On their way they go
I hear the geese down below
Direction always the same
Wondering from whence they came
Helicopter goes by
As I stare at the sky
It's military flying so low
It's destination, I don't know
Birds singing in the tree
All as quiet as can be
A snake slithers through the grass
As I watch it pass
Gator, the salamander she seeks
Redundancy goes on for weeks
Cat checks for food
As I sit and brood
As I start to nap
All my strength, it does sap
My eyes growing weary
As the world turns bleary
From consciousness I slip
As through my memories I flip
Sleep, it overtakes
The subconscious, it awakes
