Reflections: A Mid-Summer’s Night Treat--By Maurice J. Reynolds--United States

Reflections: A Mid-Summer’s Night Treat

A mid-summer’s night treat, so sweet,
just me, the open sky, the stars, and wild
flowers reacting to a soft breeze, stimulating
my mind, to unwind….just a tease of summer
days spent in my grandfather’s arms, heart-to-
heart talks with my father accented by my
mother’s charm….a mid-summer’s night
treat, remembering playing freely with friends
without the fear of harm, delightful moments in
the garden with granny; quality time galore….
reflections I so adore on this mid-summer
night, what a treat, so sweet.

  4. Dear Rev. Reynolds,
    Another tribute to the gift of this world, and all we have been given--not just in nature, but in grandparents, parents, their love and concern, their profound faith and goodness. Thank you.
