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.
