summer heat

has this summer gone particularly fast for you?

it feels like it has just whizzed by
school starts next week
some of our trees are tinged in red

summer afternoon 
summer afternoon
to me those have always been 
the two most beautiful words in the English language
Henry James

August has nearly flown
end of summer is here
the days are sunny and hot
nights cool and filled with stars
how quickly time goes by 

I almost wish we were butterflies 
and liv'd but three summer days
three such days with you I could fill with more delight 
than fifty common years could ever contain
John Keats

we grew sunflowers this year

some over 10 feet tall
they are absolutely delightful
I am planting more next year

deep summer 

is when laziness finds respectability
Sam Keen

walking the streets of Charleston 
in the late afternoons of August 
was like walking through gauze 
or inhaling damaged silk
Pat Conroy 

a perfect summer day
is when the sun is shining
the breeze is blowing
the birds are singing
... and the lawn mower is broken
James Dent

in summer
the song sings itself
William Carlos Williams

I love borders
August is the border between summer and autumn
it is the most beautiful month I know

twilight is the border between day and night
and the shore is the border between the sea and land
the border is longing

when both have fallen in love but still haven't said anything

the border is to be on the way
it is the way 
that is the most important thing
Tove Jansson

new in the little ZiBagz shop

it's been busy around here ...

for a beautiful bride in Calgary
and her bride's maids

yours is the light by which my spirit's born

you are my sun
my moon
and all my stars

>>. E.E. Cummings
