For Real Toads: Madrigals and Rondelays

It is Open Link Monday for the writers' group Imaginary Garden with Real Toads and Kerry invites us to post something unspecific. It would be difficult to find anything less specific than this poem I wrote in the middle of the night, and found on the table this morning. I rather like it, even if it ain't art.

Of Days and Rondelays
when the soft is on the kitten
and the warm is on the dog
when the wing is on the bird
and the turtle’s on a log
the world is good around us
and we know the joy of life
we feel a precious calmness
far from worry, far from strife
the chirping toads are chorusing
celebratory ’lays
and we know the precious peaceful
of extr’ordinary days

I love the first stanza--really neat images and textures. (I also love those poems you find on the table in the morning. Always feels like you've been given a present.)

Ahhh. A day without upside-down-ness! A lovely respite from the strangeness of the world. Beautiful.
