Invitation

 

 

Michelle and I recently ordered some hammocks from Fox Outdoor Sports and decided to test them out this weekend. Behind our apartment there is a Greenway around a small lake that has several wooded spots you can stop to enjoy the tranquility of the surrounding scenery. This Greenway allows us to forget that we are really in the center of busy city. The poem that follows was inspired by this hammocking adventure and was written in response to the daily word prompt, invitation. The two photos were taken using a GoPro and I feel really capture the ambience of the location.

Here we hang,

Suspended

            Hanging from

            Tree to tree

Beneath the

            Lofty pine.

Invited by

            Ambience,

            Of this place.

Here we hang,

Arm-in-arm

Below a

            Canopy.

Sky, painted

            Blue, brushed with

clouds of white.

Invited by

            Soul’s delight.

* * *

Here we hang,

Lost in love,

Ignorant,

            To the sounds

            That surround

Unaware,

            Of patrons

            Passing by

Invited by,

            Solitude.

* * *

Here we hang,

By hammock

            Lost in our

            Pseudo woods.

Forgotten,

            Is the city

            That surrounds.

Invited by

            God’s good grace

An ambience

            Given this place.
