july wanes

 at the new place
 so first i saw this one
 then this one
but i thought it was the same one
 before it vanished
not before i saw two white banners
leaping away into the meadow edge
 yes, sleepy babes
one tiny touch, 
my finger tingled with blessing.
 on this morning
 crazy funny hummingbirds
 a feast from valerie's tree
 yum
 see the moth shape 
on the bluebird house?
wings brush the rough wood as mom and dad
come home
 a little later
 this morning
the babies were hungry
waiting for more food
  rain clouds
moved through
and the day is fair, clear, a day
a day to love life,
to take care of
obligations and promises.
just a day.

i envy your days, your settledness, even in the process of building a new home! and happy you can have those cherries safely.

July can wane and even wine but July is not allowed whining!

aimee, the cherries! i meant to tell you-i tried one, then another-no problem. i think it's pesticides on the store ones.
m, yes! and NEVER do what i did. never. i was naughty, but very careful.

A good day here, too.

Sun, then brief shower, now sun again. Slooowww me for some reason. Puttering in the garden, finishing some projects. Feeling not at all like being inside.

The wing shape worn into the wood-there is a poem there. All
around life says yes again.

valerie, sounds like we're having similar weather. after the big heat, this cool seems a little too cool.
patty, yes, indeed
ronnie, yep. almost as red as your books!

...and what a beautiful day it is. I, too, envy your North Country, and the time to know it so intimately. Thank you now and always for allowing us to experience it vicariously.
