The heat of the new season has found our spot on the globe
and the lilies spread their arms to summer in a wide welcome.
Ladybugs crawl to the nearest shade
with remnants of the morning dew catching a ride on its back.
While the tiny flowers midst the grass
grow brown in the afternoon heat
the bees faithfully carry out their
God-given purpose between the swaying Lavender,
and the goats take an afternoon siesta in some shade.
The watermelon doesn't fuss about the heat,
though many of them seem to be growing
under cover of the nearest set of shade-giving leaves.
I think it is time to catch a little reprieve from the heat myself...
would you care to join me for some ice cream?
