Ah, the July garden, so sweet with heat.
The flush of nests is past,everything slows to summer.
The skies are heartbreak blue with white clouds that hide shapes in their billows.
And sometimes thunderstorms light up the sky
reminding me,I'm not in charge.
oh, and the bugs at night
a symphony,
in still dark air
after the robin has soloed

 I wrapped myself in July today,
Blue skies,
billowy clouds,
and the promise of thunderstorms tonight

I enjoyed the company of robins,goldfinches,
wrens,purple finches,one blue jay
three squirrels and four rabbits
a few butterflies, bees
and one neighbor's kid

...this day
that will never come again

  6. I really, really want to see you yard in person. I think we could spend the whole afternoon outside in your garden chatting.

    Off to Truckee this weekend to assist my daughter with her Artour.
