Unwind Here!
by Gay Williford

Beyond the small, open porch
lies a full-grown garden,
its path margined by a shortened palm tree
and other leafy tropical bushes.
A bird feeder and two hanging plants
adorn this small inner space as well as a tiled flowerpot.
A black and white-striped cushion
covers a metal settee, inviting a lounge,
as it sits beside a small cloth-covered table
cleared of a just-concluded luncheon.
A metal wine cup on a tall stem
lingers on the table like a fond memory,
hesitant to depart this relaxing scene.
