DMC: "Comfortable" by Donna JT Smith


Carefree with barefeet
Overalls and a tee-shirt
Melting into a hammock
Freely swinging,
One foot dangling
Relaxed, not
Azure eyes
Blink slowly until
Lazy lids
Extinguish the light.

  1. That is a perfect profile of comfortable. Well, done Donna! I especially like "relaxed, not taxed". I need to head over to the padlet and see all these beauties in a bunch.

  2. I could sure use a hammock to melt into right about now! Like Linda said, a perfect profile of comfortable, Donna. Thanks!

  3. Now wishing I had a hammock for the afternoon nap! Love this kind of "comfortable."

  4. I love that dangling relaxed bare foot. Just right for feeling comfortable.

    1. I love that dangling foot! Perfect!

  5. Thanks for sharing my acrostic today. What a fun exercise this was. And thanks for the kind comments! Wish it was hammock season!

  6. I confess, Donna, I hadn't even noticed it was an acrostic. Now I'm REALLY impressed!
