Phote Quote: Summer Rose

"Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
 Are faded and gone."

~  Thomas Moore, The Last Rose    of Summer, 1830

Our own rose plant...a bit too tired after a dry, sultry summer.

We have a rooster and his team, somewhere in the fields across....who can't stop his call until the sun is on his head. The co-co-ro-co reconnects me instantly to my childhood, and our own i love it, but today with the overcast sky, he seems to have gone back to sleep sooner . . .

flying kites

On  Independence Day (August 15) and until a few days after, it's kind of a historical ritual to fly kites high in the sky as an expression of freedom and happiness...

playing out 
more string to the wind ~
the August sky reverberating 
with the laughter of children
flying kites 

....and this another August sky...the birds...ever and forever celebrating their freedom...

Not a poem per se... may be a line from an story, yet to be written
