I walked through the IMS RV lot on Georgetown Road
to visit the trees. Summer has come with a vengance.
After a winter that didn't want to leave, the heat and humidity,
while appropriate to the season, are sort of a shock
to one's system. I made a point of finding
shade under a tall fir tree where I looked up to see
the hot sun filtering its way through the dark green lace
of the tree's needles, contrasting against
the thick, black lines of its branches.
