ladybugs, robins, summer

spotted


Spotted
robins.
Three of them.
Young ones, for sure.
Fledglings, nestlings,
constant feedings.
Papa Robin worn thin, too worn for singing.
Evening songs competing
with cicadas
and crickets.
Ribbits.
When did that happen?
You know, Summer running up ahead,
glancing back. And that snotty grin?
Summer’s promise, the long days of june.
Done
And
Done.
Ahh ….
Spotted
lady,
painted bright and new as spring.
Me? I’m whining and lamenting
where this weird old summer’s going.

summer, sunlight

quiet

for a few weeks in the summer,
the days are long enough and the sun stays high enough
for the last light of the day to make it in from the west

Just a note …
Beginning this week, I will post less often. I want to spend more time outside, and I’ve got a couple of projects I want to focus on. To be clear, I don’t have a WIP … I’m not the publishing type. But I’m trying to collect and organize what I’ve written so I have a way to preserve what’s important to me in a good quality printed version.
