front porch musings


I love this time of year
Sitting on my front porch
Reading a book
Writing
Chatting with a friend
It makes me so happy to feel the fresh air
And soak in the sunshine
My best ideas come to me when I am outside

Today a special visitor and his four legged friend stopped by
I loved the surprise of the moment
We live around the block from one another but don't see each other that often
I am hoping more impromptu visits like that happen this spring and summer
Maybe even spend some time together on the front porch
Or a walk around the pond

The fresh air wakes me up
The longer days light up my heart
I have a little pep in my step
A smile across my face
And an open invitation to join me on my front porch
To sit with me and share your stories
I would love to hear what is living in your heart

Back in the "old Days" when we were growing up, the front porch was our hangout. We spent many happy hours there with everyone from the neighborhood. Your poem brings back many happy memories.
Great topic for a writing.
