Stolen Moments – A Quadrille
Today I stole precious moments
Sitting for half hour
Choosing to defy summer heat
Longing for sun’s warmth
And the scent of summer flowers
I browse the book on my lap
that tells me to take time
and smell the roses
… so I did

Thanks K. It was such a simple thing to do too . I don’t know why I fight it so much! ☺️💕
There’s a lot of competition for our attention these days, at least I feel that way. I love reading but sometimes the book just ends up resting on my lap.
Thank you! ☺️💕
