A walk to my beloved farmers’ market in the morning, and then a bit of prep for the uncertainty of Hurricane Henri. Where will he land? How long will he stay? Will power fail, basements flood? Questions that only time will answer.

And he just sat there, in the middle of the sidewalk as I walked closer and closer snapping photos. And I swear I saw him later in my yard hopping toward my quite-munched garden. Adorable predator.

week 669~ as if waiting for the moon rise

with 2 comments

as if waiting for the moon rise
now birds fall silent insects hum
themselves to sleep dreaming of sun
watching the forest through their eyes
we welcome evening in disguise
troubles dropping by the wayside
lost in fallen acorns they hide
with past disappointments as if
they realize a single wiff
of doubt could shove our peace aside

Creativity feels blocked today as I try to work on my pandemic compositions. But my group arrives to play music, eat a delicious potluck supper, and plan our schedule for the rest of 2021. The balm of friendship and music soothes the soul.

Today P & I “take a sad song and make it better…” to quote the Beatles. We drive south to the rehab center where P’s dad currently resides for a briefing and, somber information noted, circle across the bay to a renown spot for long-promised lobster rolls and ice cream. It’s nice to have an outing, to sit in the sun and relax, for P to have a brief respite from his family worries.

A harvest from my garden. Thank goodness the local critters seem not to munch tomato plants, although I have found a few uneaten fruit strewn about in the yard.

Happy birthday to my brother, the younger one, today! We sibs will connect by Zoom tomorrow to wish him a good year ahead. Still hot today. Watching the busy bees sip from flowers at my front door.

Seen on my walk today– delicate & beautiful, just beginning to frazzle in the heat.
