Summer’s Glory

“Labor Day weekend,

Sunny warm sky.

Roll out summer’s glory,

Soon time to say, “Goodbye”.”

 

“Yours is the day,

Yours also the night;

You have established the heavenly lights and the sun.

You have fixed all the boundaries of the earth;

You have made summer and winter.”

Psalm 74:16-17 (ESV)

Summer’s Song

“The sky is blue as you move along;

Hovering over the waters,

In tune with summer’s song.”

 

 

Written of my swimming friend, a beautiful black and white winged dragonfly.

He delighted me with his playful presence on a perfect summer day.

Little did I know, once visited, he would not return to hover or play.

Boardwalk Strides

“Summer days,

I count each one.

Lots of time for play and fun.

Morning cool,

Afternoons of pool.

Evening tides,

Boardwalk strides.

Umbrella’s flapping in the sun,

Goodbye to June,

Your “season’s” done.

Hello July!

Light up the sky!!”

“You own the day, You own the night;

You put stars and sun in place.

You laid the four corners of earth,

Shaped the seasons of summer and winter.”

Proverbs 74:16-17 (The Message)

Happy Fourth of July!!

Length of Days – June

“We’re on the threshold of July;

When did June gets wings to fly!

Longer days;

Length to play,

But yet June choose to fly away.

Mr. June, your

Gone too soon.

Prepare the sky,

Here comes July!”

“The day is Yours, and Yours also the night;

You establish the sun and the moon.

It was You who set all the boundaries of the earth;

You made both the summer and the winter.”

Psalm 74:16-17 (NIV)

Have You Not Heard! A New Thing

“New Day,

New Month,

New Season,

New Change.

Purposely setting

One foot in front of the other;

Embracing Life,

Never the same!”

 

“Do not remember the former things,

Nor consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing,

Now it shall spring forth;

Shall you not know it?

I will even make a road in the wilderness and

Rivers in the desert.”

Isaiah 43:18-19 NKJV

Dolphins Tune

Journal Note:

Cooler – about 3:00 a.m. a true North wind blew –

The dolphin wind chimes tinkled in tune to the

Coolness of the north wind. –

“No west wind blew.

No east wind came.

The North wind echoed,

“There’s been a change!”

The South rose up and said,

“It’s still summer here!”

“Be gone cold wind,

It’s my time of year!”

“I bring the warmth up from the west;

Dry desert winds that

Bake and test!”

“Go back from where, and

Whist you came,

“South” winds blow

Is still my name!!”

Photo101 – Day 18 – Edges and Lines – Clothesbasket in Tow

“Nothing sweeter

In my mind,

Then hanging laundry

On the line.

Light summer breezes,

Each pin squeezes,

Colors in motion

Stretched over time.

 

Lovingly spaced,

Shirt, shift, and lace.

Each sock and partner,

Paired for the race.

 

The Drier is easy,

Push a button and go.

Remove stress,

And wrinkles,

Clothesbasket in tow!”

Photo101 – Pop and Color – Wind Chimes Play

“I put up the summer wind chimes

for the first time today.

Remembering soft breezes,

Their gentle music play.

The warmth of the sunshine,

Rising in the day.

Hours stretch before me;

My ear picks up the beat.

Gentle breezes blowing;

Faithful dog at my feet.”
