Smoothly Touch Our Heart

Smooth, silky leaves hang on a willow tree.

Playing below, my sister and me.

Brushing beautiful blonde hair on a Palamino.

Gently braiding the tail, and off we go.

Where the meadows bloom with succulent flowers,

touching petals softly for hours.

Feathers gently fall into our palm.

A feeling of texture that is so calm.

Nature sounds tones of sweet bluegrass.

Memories of years that pass.

Calming times of down on the ranch.

As I reach high, holding the rippled branch.

The wheat grew high; fingers touched the tips.

Photographing moments and textures of the trips.

Time so sweetly touched our heart.

Like that of a sweet butter tart.

    I am overjoyed to have a top story. I thank the Vocal media and all of you for lifting my heart and bringing so much joy to me. Thank you everyone.

  • Beautifully whimsical. Be aware… autocorrect loves to change ‘petals’ to ‘pedals.’ Congratulations on TS.
