wk 219 vivid

Time for a walk, I’m short on steps

Outside my door, one tiny phlox,

a vivid purple, demands my attention

It succeeds. I photograph it and turn

right into the rain I hadn’t noticed

Big, fat drops bounce off the hot pavement

releasing petrichor

delighting my nose

God, I love that scent!

I breathe deep and keep walking

Turning the corner, a bright white cloud

Can white be vivid?

it is so bright

over there, while

thunder cracks

over here

I jump over puddles, laughing

all the way home

    • Thank you, Gigi. And doesn’t that cloud look particularly so? I took it from under the canopy of a tree since it was raining so hard where I was!

    What a beautiful summer walk! And the Gene Kelly vibe mingling with Thoreau as you amble (Where’d I get that word from again?) into the sweet embrace of a summer’s late afternoon, evening . . it was the perfect way to stroll. Imagine NOT getting this out of summer? Imagine just bitching and moaning about the heat without taking a breath and drinking in the best of it too?

    After which we can bitch and moan about the heat! 😉
