Fluffy Towels

What is life if not fluffy towels?

Big enough to wrap you twice

A night looking up at the sky

Counting stars in the Milky Way

What finer sight than a coastline

Windswept and soaked in rain

In the dryness of the cabin

Playing cards and drinking tea

No greater pleasure than friends

Dropping in totally unannounced

A slap up meal and drinks all ‘round

Sleeping bags and pull out beds

What is life if not fluffy towels?

Big enough to wrap you twice

And Sundays in bed ‘til brunch

In the arms of the one you love.

    Good morning Jackie (Shinade), I think its Wednesday here in Australia but I'll have to check!

    Thanks for the feedback on this poem. It was good fun to write and that comes through I guess and the rhythm is always so important to a good poem I believe.

    Have a great Wednesday (or Tuesday depending on when you see this)
