Soft rain fell all night —
my nasturtiums, zinnias,
cosmos are smiling.

Porch, kitchen, office —
dog follows me everywhere.
Draw line at bathroom.

Have a summer cold —
you know the kind — fever,
chills, can’t sleep at night.

A still, calm-before-
the-thunderstorm kind of day.

Day will be too hot —
bright sun, cicada song hot.
Not my cup of tea.

Fresh green fades from trees —
hints of red, yellow creep in.
Squint eyes to see fall.
