Lazy Afternoon

By Jeanne Armonk

A peaceful calm envelops the backyard,

The sun is exerting itself very hard.

The cumulus clouds roll slowly above,

Not a bird insight, not even a dove.

     The breeze in the trees sounds like the ocean,

Outdoor fountains keep water in motion.

Dragonflies hover over the bubbles,

Buzzing around without cares or troubles.

How serene it can be here in the yard,

With time to reflect and let down one's guard.

The cares of the day do not exist here,

On this lazy afternoon oh so dear.

My interest with writing began by composing poems about nature in my childhood. I also co-wrote a play in my 4th grade class when I lived in New Rochelle, NY. It generated enough positive feedback that my class put on the play in the school auditorium. I was fortunate to have a lead part. After my high school graduation, I entered the working world. For over 30 years I have been steadily gaining writing, editing and digital publishing skills. I began by composing letters and emails to company clients. I contributed to articles written for The Commuters Register based in Windsor, CT. Since 2009, I have added social media, digital publishing and blogging here in Wilkesboro, NC. Since 2010, I write ad copy for the listing descriptions for each of my 3 Internet shops open at In 2012, I entered a poem about my dog Red in the World Poetry Contest. The poem was chosen for publication. I have written articles for the Winston-Salem Frugal Living Examiner and Hub Pages. In 2012, I acquired The Wilkes Gazette digital newspaper that was renamed the Wilkes County Gazette in 2014. I write under both my own name and my pen name, Jeanne Armonk.
