Shade Tree

snow tree backyard


basking in warm summer days

hosting backyard gatherings

witnessing  family love always

saluting the love with leaves fluttering

spicey barbecue aromas not under cover

wafting through the air filling the senses

ongoing anticipation and laughter hover

stories and games in progress on benches

long yarns from mom came all day

all gather round to absorb these plays

shade tree now hosting shivering beauty

longs for the chance to bask in summer duty
