It was almost too much,
the summer solstice and the
super moon of the year
all within one weekend.
The fiery long summer days
and the luminous powerful moon,
bombarded me day and night.
Confusion, chaotic dreams, crazy thoughts!
Now the days shorten, the moon wanes,
and my overpowered senses recover.
I think it may be safe to wander again.
Did I mention I like sunsets?
Even reflected glory to the East
sends me running outside
with my camera.
If only I could fly away tonight
on my own pink spaceship.
Ho Hum, said the photographer,
I tire of taking pictures of sunsets,
I have lived here for years
and have seen too many.
The day I no longer marvel at
and photograph sunsets
you can put me in the grave
because I will already be dead.
June brides and weddings….
I smiled at three couples taking vows
on the beach as I took my afternoon walk.
It is also nesting season for local shorebirds.
A least tern male wooed his mate with a shiny fish.
She took her time, but eventually, she said “yes.”
I guess humans still dance to nature’s rhythms.
Best wishes to all of the happy couples.
Hot summer day, chores done
and feeling lazy.
Maybe a sunset walk later
and a dip in the Gulf.
Until then, so grateful that
two friends dropped by
to share their day.
