Friday Flowers

Prompt:
Carpe Diem Special #152, Rallentanda’s fourth “friday flowers”

When youth reigned, friday nights were my favorite. The end of the work week was for kicking back and truly relaxing. Most often this meant we were on a blanket, on the floor of a B747, near the galley drinking ouzo and playing poker on the way to a weekend in Athens. Where of course, there was no sleep to be had. Yeah, when youth reigned!
I still love fridays, but now I part take in more earth bound pursuits.

On the Porch

rain draining off awning

Photo taken off my porch

One of my very favorite things to do since childhood is to sit on the porch during a heavy downpour.  The pummeling of the tin roof by hearty raindrops was always music to me. A rhythm like none other in nature. The splashing from the raindrops,  and the dodging of wind driven sideway rain, was always part of this reverie.

summer passes

late summer
even hotter by the breath
of dragonflies

mid-summer
the sadness of knowing
days grow shorter

between summer flowers
dreaming of next summer

tears shed
on my naked body …
summer is passing
