16 june

it's been gray all the day long

murky and overcast

mist falling between showers

a kind of a soft ocean breeze shuffling the leaves

and filling the air with cool salty wetness

she made a quiche in the morning 

because there were so much milk in the house

and half a bag of shredded Swiss cheese

a few leftover tidbits of vegetables

 in the early afternoon she made a pot of tea

there was nothing like tea on a cool misty day

  sipping it as she worked

she made a corn chowder

to pack for lunches in leftover yoghurt containers.


the sparrows had chattered amongst one another all day at the feeders

purple finches lighting on the porch balusters

 singing to the earth a new song

cardinals cheerfully chirping end of day

 it was getting on evening now

 she stood at the window in the dining room
 conversing with Joe about what their days had held,

  what tomorrow might hold,

watching the night and a dusky fog 

settling softly over their rather tiny island


  1. Everyday objects make beautiful photos and images for poetry.

  2. It sounds like a perfectly beautiful productive day. Perfect. Hug B

  3. I am a coffee person myself, but! I do enjoy tea as well, and I think tea makes everything better!

  4. I would like a bite of the quiche :D

  6. Such beautiful words and peaceful pictures, dear one. Thank you so much for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs and blessings to you!

  7. A cup of tea in that lovely teacup sounds wonderful with some quiche; love quiche! We don't have cardinals here unfortunately. Maybe someday they will find their way to our little island. Thanks for joining me for tea and enjoy your week.


  8. This was lovely to read - calm, peaceful, as the grey mist from the ocean washed over me......

  9. Yes! Tea is perfect for this kind of day, be it the beach or anywhere else. And does it get any better than corn chowder? Only if it's clam chowder.

  10. Lovely! There's nothing better than a cup of tea to lift the spirits during rainy, gloomy days.

  11. You wrote a beautiful post and the pictures are amazing. Blessings, Martha

  12. Lovely! Sometimes the slowest, simplest days are the sweetest ones. Thanks for sharing!

  13. How lovely! The poetic style to your writing is wonderful and sweet!
