Sun shines bright and early.
The whole earth seems overheated and highlighted.
Shade on the porch feels good and better with a fan.
Roses and hydrangeas bloom.
Children slurp popsicles and dream of afternoon when they can swim.
Farmers go inside and doze as they cool off to eat their lunches.
Icy water and lemonade glasses sweat and puddle up like dew rising on cold morning grass.
Hummers buzz to and from the feeders.
Mothers water their porch flowers and go inside to read and put their babies down for naps.
Dogs sleep in the shade or dig in the cool of flowerbeds to rest.
Cicadas drone and treefrogs chorus. Fireflies come out to play just as the moon rises.
Summer–– long, hot, drowzy, and wonderful.
