during the summer
every night at about 7:30 to 8:00
(all i can say is
Thank You God
for such beautiful creation
even in my own backyard.
for i enjoy it and marvel at it so.)
the sun slides to an angle
touching everything perfectly with hazy golden rays.
everything is quiet and still and calm,
but so alive and pulsing with life.
the humid air begins to cool
little critters scurry about,
jumping out of the way as i tramp through the grass.
flowers bob their heads,
their petals illuminated,
sisters' hair is teased by the breeze and caught by the sun
making it look like strands of fire.
