Neighborhood Noises …

Blogging University, Musings, Photography, Poetry

A quiet, peaceful pocket in this town,
Small bungalows line narrow streets
Each and every house here looks unique
A neighborhood walk here is a treat!

An early morning stroll around the block
Past the community garden, then left on Denton
Behind a fence a dog starts barking
Near the round-about, on Benton.

A kaleidoscope of flowers in bloom
Ongoing draught encouraged planting natives
Under shade trees Naked Ladies dressed in pink
No lawnmowers needed here for the creative!

A lady starts chatting over her morning glory fence
Perched high on a wire the mockingbird sings
At the top of every hour a song floats through the air
It always follows right after the church bell rings.

Once back at the house again, relaxing on the deck
My freshly brewed café in hand
Fragrant lemon blossoms scent the air,
Rustling leaves, singing birds: It’s nature’s own Big Band!

  1. I feel like I just took a trip through paradise! Love that neighborhood – I’m sure it has a lot of stories to tell. That gorgeous gigantic tree – is it yours? What is it? Your poetry between the images is perfection. You are a multi-talented lady with unbelievable amounts of energy. This is an exquisite post! 🙂

    • Thank you Lola! The neighborhood is in Santa Rosa, Ca. It’ where I stay when I visit there every summer. My friend lives in one of these charming little houses complete with a beautiful lemon tree. Not sure what kind of tree it is, but I’ll find out. Thanks again for your kind words! They mean a lot to me from one of my favorite poets! 😊
