Summer and the need...

Summer and I find myself outside
in the sun, in the heat,
and the wind arrives and blesses me.

Summer and the plants grow
in the sun, in the heat,
and rain arrives to quinch their thirst.

Summer and the children play
in the sun, in the heat, in the rain
and their laughter is contagious.

Stay peaceful, oh tiny neighborhood;
my small world of races, creeds, and colors.
You fuilfill Summer and the need...


  1. Neat. A picture may paint a thousand words but these few words paint a vivid picture, a personal snapshot. I think there are certain things that can only be said with poetry.

  3. Speaking of summer heat, I just came back from a trip to Grand Canyon. It was hot but very beautiful. Like to share a few photos with you if you get the chance at

  4. Hi Paul,

    I really enjoyed your site. You captured so much beauty and the colors are so vibrant. Photography is certainly a gift for you! I was quite surprised to know one could find squirrels in the Grand canyon.

    I must see it one day. Thank you for visiting. Hope your summer is filled with good memories.

  5. Ah Dixie,
    Such an idyllic image you have noted.

  6. Hi Gary.

    I'm truly blessed with a diverse community. One neighbor's trash becomes another neighbor's treasure. There is a real sharing and caring atmosphere here.
    I hope your summer is the best!!

  7. Beautiful words, Dixie. Very inspiring. They fill one's heart with joy. You have an eloquent way with words. Summer, indeed, brings out the sun, fun, growth and peace of mind.

    It reminds me that when I'm taking my walks amongst the trees and flowers, every day, it's important to reflect on what nature and the season of summer brings forth to us. We should respect the Earth and do what we can to keep this "gift of life" alive.

  8. Thank you, Mike. You've been writing some really wild but interesting posts. Sometimes I've no clue what to say... but I can usually rise above my shyness, LOL.

    Thank you for the compliment!

  9. Ah Kelly, you really know how to express the heartfelt longing of so many: " keep the gift of live alive."

    You seem to live in a beautiful state; I love the videos where you take the reader along. So peaceful indeed.

    I appreciate your comment!
