Nan's In The Now In Summer

Seeing light blue and pink clouds transforming into bowls of cotton candy
that only her unique imagination can create,

NAN'S IN THE NOW IN SUMMER

Watching flowers shaped like wedding bells, white on white, swaying ever so gently in the ocean breeze
while sipping a glass of champagne with strawberries floating amongst the bubbles,

NAN'S IN THE NOW IN SUMMER

Smelling the fragrance of gardenias and feeling their velvety petals against her smooth cheek, seeing bright
green blades of grass dancing to the beat of the wind, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, and at times trying
to listen to the sounds of silence or the silence of sounds,

NAN'S IN THE NOW IN SUMMER

Living one day at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time, until time stops, and in front of you
is a golden sun changing into hues of red and orange as it descends towards the horizon,
streaking into light and dark shades of purple, before entering into the sparkling green sea,

And when that happens you know that,

NAN'S IN THE NOW IN SUMMER

  3. from Mary Torregrossa: A poem of heightened awareness and living to appreciate the moment filled with color,taste,touch,sound and the scent of green grass and ocean breezes.
