For the love of Summer: Wink on Wednesday

Go Wink Go!
For the love of summer

Of open-toed shoes
of orchards so heavy with fruit they drop when ripe
((thud thud thunk))
For puppies
and pie
and even sewers gone awry (don't ask)

For fragrant flowers
and friends
Portland's free concerts in the park.

For sunshine.
and jam.
Catching up with neighbors over the fence
while we water the tomatoes.
For summer rain
wet on dry pavement.
The scent almost makes me miss the rain.

For running with wild abandon
in fields
filled with heat
and bees
Oh for the bees!
Bumbles overdosing in flowers
heavy with pollen

For the love of summer.
I love my Oregon summer.

Gee, I may have to move to Portland after I retire in a couple of years...

Great photo of Wink and wonderful statements about summer.

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog - it meant a lot to me!

It looks like a tiny wink is attempting to break the space/time continuum and fly into my room. NooooOO!!
