A Pleasant Interlude

Both June and August this year were fraught with personal storms for me, but in July I was granted a blessedly peaceful and pleasant interlude. Here are a few word-snapshots of that time.

Packing the car on
Independence Day,
setting out,
tentatively hopeful.

Hot day. Cool water
rushing over bare feet.
Pure and simple bliss.

Carolina night. The low,
flitting stars are fireflies.

A thousand small birds
join the river in coaxing
the dawn into day.
