Photographers, artists, poets: show us ORDERLY.
A hot summer’s day.
Barely the wind blows.
Calm before the storm clouds drop rain.
Dog days of summer in Florida.
Everything drips with sweat!
Forgetting winter, what a dream.
Getting through the day without A/C!
Humid, sticky, I grab another ice tea
I languish in my comfy porch chair hoping for a breeze.
Just in time the rain starts to fall
Knives, the rain slices through the dense air.
Letting drops fill crevices
Marrying the sand
Nothing loves the rain more than the cicadas or me
Only we seem to notice the drop in the temperature
Possibly the birds bathing in the puddles
Quiet afternoon looming over the upcoming evening
Restless but content
Soul stirs and mind is awake
Typing on wordpress and sharing on facebook
Until dinner time nears
Valuable time of introspection
Willfully passing slowly
Zen like intuition says “Enjoy the day!”
