Word-High July: Kalinaw – Serenity/Tranquility


Late afternoon and it’s been hot

A day out of the heat.

A gentle breeze suggests cool.

We sit at my back fence,

Watch as the day ebbs away.

The sun slides behind the distant gums

Holding hands, we chat, take in the peace

Afforded us by the end of day.
