"we need to learn to dance more softly"

She would bring the geraniums in from the porch when the cooler weather came.

In her imagination she had already mapped out a place for them.

The would sit on the sideboard table in the dining room.

all of the winter they would be there with  low winter light shining soft and cottony over them.

And in the spring she would bring them back out to the porch where they would greet the warm weather

with new blossoms and unfurling leaves.

In the empty places on the porch she would plant mums of yellow and purple.

But not yet.

Not till September when summer was truly almost over and the nights were cool

for now, it was enough to sit out on the porch a spell

 dream a little dream - plan a little plan

wait to see if morning glories would finally  blossom  

and marvel at how well the rosemary did this year

 watch the rest of August come settling over the island

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth 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
