Lit From Within

The sun intensifies.

It's yellow light
makes everything glow
as if lit from within.

Cicadas and crickets buzz and click
filling the air with their non-stop, jazzy tempo
and sweat trickles down the small of my back
with the smallest of movements
...or no movement at all.

Garden chores have to wait
as I sip drinks stacked full of ice cubes,

And watch everything around me grow
and ripen,

knowing that fall is but a step away.


  1. Yellow means sunny and sure we all love this color, Rosemary. lovely photos!

  2. Oh yes, the Red Admiral butterfly in the top picture is unique, and the rest of them are brilliant Rosemary.

  3. I love this sunny colour, and it is sunny, here too. Let's enjoy our gardens on lazy afternoons, with a drink and a good book.

  4. Magnificent photos (as always).

  5. Hello dear Rosemary!
