sideways sunflower


















Nodding golden halo-crown,

Petals wrapped in dressing-gown

Curtsy low and, praying, bend

To usher in the Summer’s end.

      *sigh* I have been conscious this summer of enjoying all that it had to offer – as a consequence, I feel like I had a GREAT summer. But it is hard to let go of nice weather when I know what is ahead. Lessons all around…

        Yes, lessons–and I’m sure I’d be more troubled, if I had your winter to look forward to. I’m grateful ours are usually mild. I’m so glad you had a Great summer–that’s wonderful.
