Mid Summer's Day Dream

It's been one of those summers when one can really appreciate those sturdy & resilient plants, that have the strength & determination to not only mingle with the weeds, but flourish...
We were most fortunate to attend the performance of the Kenny Barron Trio, last Thursday evening at Wesleyan University, in Middletown, Ct.
The above is a very simple, yet intricate labyrinth on Wesleyan's campus, which we discovered during our meanderings just before trio time...
In the photo below is my husband contemplating as he does the walk...
Our majestic yucca, in all her radiant glory...
The humble yet essential parsley in her newly created spot...
Tiger lilies transplanted over a decade ago, & as happy as any sun loving lily can be...

Mid Summer's Day Dream

summer's a cooking, way down the pike

with yellows and oranges, pinks that delight

temps in the 90's with weeds in full view

so I will meandeaour, take in summer's hue

walk round a field track, perhaps it's a maze

when all's said and done comes the end of this haze...

I know that it's worth it, our time in the heat

and when one is lucky, the people they meet

it's part of a story, your story too

we all grow in wisdom, no not just the few

together we manage, must practice each rhyme

for flowers are fleeting, and thus is our time


And so concludes today's addition to the Poetry A Muse In Motion Project.
