Afternoon Reverie

Adirondack lavender chairs beneath trees
Original photo taken at Linfield College-2019-Adirondack lavender chairs beneath trees by Leona J. Atkinson

Enjoying summer in

Lavender adirondacks

Warmth of the sunshine

Seeps through ancient tree’s canopy

Ministering to my soul


(Visited the college today to get my books for the Fall semester and decided to take a walk around campus since it was such a nice day. Saw these lavender chairs and had to stop to rest in them.😊)

Bench near the woods and among fall Leaves

The leaves susurrate beneath my feet

As I pause to cogitate

My mind says I should be festinating

I suspire

And continue to ruminate

A reverie in the wood
