Author Brenda-Lee Ranta: Day for Dreams


Pink lace curtains

tinted the room in

rosewood silhouettes

Wispy light made

angular, danced

upon the walls

on a summer breeze


The large grey cat

stretched out on the

worn wood floor,

head resting on

fringes of a rag rug

The dog languished

in the sun slivers


Sundays were made

for dreams, for pauses

emptying coffee cups,

to toast well worn books;

words on wings

replacing schedules,

replacing compulsions


Sundays were made

for poets, for lovers,

bohemians and gypsies,

strumming faded guitars,

humming folk songs,

weaving daisy chains till

sunshine bid them goodnight.
