8 july


summer breeze

blows the kitchen curtains inward

i see the movement from the corner of my eyes

 i am wiping down the inside of my refrigerator

i am glad for the cooler air 

filling my kitchen with the sweet and easy scent of summer

rain comes in i can hear it falling steady and soft

there is a storm expected later in the afternoon

 clouds are piling up over the Atlantic on the east side of the island

 i return to my housekeeping

hands in the soapy water

and my eye on the corn I've set to boiling

Please consider joining me for Tuesday Afternoons

  1. I love your poem! Poetry has a way of piercing the heart like nothing else can. When I read it, I felt like I was there, enjoying the summer rain. Blessings! Tasha (Your neighbor at Coffee for Your Heart)

  2. It is so true ... there is a scent & feel to summer which is so comforting. Beautiful photo too! We were neighbors this morning at Women With Intention :)

  3. I just love summer. I think that your description is perfect!

  4. Your photo, your thoughts, I love the message of attentive living that both portray.

  5. Such lovely portraits you paint with your gift of words, my friend. It is always such a pleasure to visit you! :)

  6. You write beautifully. I could feel the summer wind.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.

Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
