Helping Hands

Summer temperatures have been visiting us for the past month.
The skies are a beautiful blue and filled with fields 
of puffy clouds that appear, for all intents,
as though they might have been cast for a sappy, 
happy movie. The trees are full of green leaves, 
 a lush backdrop for kids playing in the parks,
joggers, lovers sharing the shade and whispered
phrases as they walk along the lanes.

The gloves lay drying in a driveway, their
presence speaking of a long partnership of shared duties,
this one of summer yard care.

That looks vaguely creepy.
