I planted the onions today. A bulb’s worth of garlic. The cauliflower starts, nearly four months old, but mere wisps of expectation, went in.
The sprinkler rained around the newest plum, July. From fifty feet afar it made the air feel cooler.
The sun beat back the shadows and the mist drops upon the earth rose again to reach the sky.
Retreating indoors, I, myself,set the temperature to rise…
I kept coming back to this: “The sun beat back the shadows and the mist drops upon the earth rose again to reach the sky.”
Until it became (for me), and will remain, this:
the sun beat back the shadows
the mist drops upon the earth
rose again to reach the sky
Aww, I like that! I’m glad you found pause between the words. There’s so little pause in life these days it seems.
Yes, your words are lovely and also help me understand that lack of cold out there.. good luck with those caulifowers – I love cauli!
Thanks! Fingers crossed they don’t all get nibbled by the snails, lizards, and other hungry tummies.
