Hello August

Hello August

you are
flowers on fire
hot in the sun
wishing for a kiss of rain

you are
everyone waiting
cool breeze anticipation
for a moment to catch your breath

you are
baby bees
wings still wet
trying to do his best

you are
warm evenings
quietly dreaming
that you go slower than July

I like August because its one month away from my favorite time of year, FALL!!! cool days, clean crisp air, no humidity and perfect weather for being outside.

Awesome photography!

beautiful photos and like the poem, but here in FL i am hoping August goes as fast as July and gets our temps down to breathable and less chance of hurricanes.

August is gonna be a busy month around here. Ramadan started today which means a different sort of schedule for everyone, I go back to work on the 14th and then the Eid at the end of the month. We will be in Paris for 5 days and then school starts for the boys on September 5th. Yikes! I can already feeling it slipping away. Have a great week. Tammy

Such beautiful photos! I'm dreaming that August goes slower than July especially since my birthday is at the end of the month. I'll wait on turning older as long as I can!

These photos are wonderful, Catherine. Amazing how much heat these flowers can take and still look so pretty. :)

I loved your poem too. I feel the same way about summer.

These are particularly stunning photos, Catherine. Such a joy it is to visit your blog. :-)

I have a sneaky suspicion August will pass as quickly as July--already it seems that the new school year is just around the corner.

Tamago said...

What a beautiful post Catherine, and the sentiments are mine also. July just flew by, and I pray August is a little more comfortable, and yes goes a little slower.
