"This is what I'll miss about summer"
We were driving home this evening from a local Italian restaurant.
It had rained quite heavily off and on all day - but now
now the evening sun was shining its warm gauzy glow
the air was fresh with that mixture of leaves and grass smell
the day had slowed down to a meander
It was delicious.
"This - right now - this....."
"Oh - yes, I know........"
Summer carries an energy that motivates,
and presents possibilities
especially summer evenings
still light out
a quiet buzz
No other season gives you that.
Winter evenings are dark, chilly and sleepy.
The fall tries to imitate summer - badly.
Spring disappoints with its delayed promise.
Only summer evenings prolong the hope.
Summer is ending and I will miss it - especially its evenings.
