How I love the summer
Sipping wine with friends on our side of the Basin
watching Natal Day Fireworks
as moored yachts bobbed back and forth on gentle waves.
A great show for our little town.
Chatting with friends shaded from Summer's sun.
An enchanted afternoon.
Dipped in rust
then dried beneath the midday sun.
A day in the studio
pinning bits and pieces to the design wall
then moving and re-pinning
This week I've been having a recurring dream about whales for some reason.
I'm sitting on the front porch with guests
looking out over the ocean as it laps up against our front step.
Suddenly we notice a whale.
He approaches gently and lays his massive head
on a big flat rock right in front of us.
my guest is too scared to look
I am in awe of this gentle giant.
A moonlit concert beneath the stars
and for a brief shining moment
the space station
as it flew overhead.
For Sunday a say of rest using those special
blues of summer
those Mediterranean blues.
