Summer

don_socalFebruary 27, 2011

Mud oozes between toes

crawdads crawl by

catfish nudge ankles

warm water gives a sigh

Fire flys emerge at dusk

rest on hand a spell

warm humid evening descends

bringing a musky smell

Trees, grass and flowers

fill senses

with a perfume natural

remembrance

lightening thunder

gentle rain

clean fresh morning

again

Just thought it would help to visualize warm weather.

Guess this will be today's quote. Is it OK to quote one's self?

Of course it is, Don - and it's a good one, too

Not a problem at all. Don't have to imagine warm weather. The warm spell of the last few weeks have chased winter away for a bit. It's 73 right now. The southern wind is bringing humidity up from the Gulf. Swatted my first mosquito of the season. Must be a record. Even the oak trees are beginning to leaf out.

We should get a spell of rough weather tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully nothing to worry much about.

Sure, it's ok to quote oneself. You painted a very nice pic, with words, about summer. My winter garden is turning into spring, my broccoli is bolting. My mind will turn to your summer vision.
My apple trees are budding and the flowers will be out with their lovely fragrance soon. I wish I could write the way you do to explain the senses. Perhaps I'll take some pics as my "quote".
Very nice, don_socal, do more of the same.

That's not only "your own quote", it's poetry. Very nice!

You paint such a lovely picture in one's mind. That was especially nice to read after yesterday's departing shot from February, since the backyard is cold, deep mud, still standing puddles and tree litter.

Don, if that's the stuff that comes out of your brainwaves,
you can come sit in my gazebo ANY day----bring Missy, too!

--your light made my day.
