Summer in my heart
Do you ever sit still in the evening sun
Just to feel the warm breeze on your skin
Or to engulf yourself in evening jasmine or honeysuckle?
Do you ever silence your mind with distant mumbles of lawnmowers
or children’s final moments of joy filled play?
While the golden-red hues gather to welcome the moon.
The gentle breeze connects you to me
She moves with quiet determination between continents.
She carries the resonance of beating hearts
And the silent words of daydreams.
The gentle breeze that carries the sun sets warmth
whispers untold “I love you’s”
and parents proud thoughts.
The birdsong of dusk gives thanks for the day
With a gentleness that differs to the dawn chorus.
It as though she knows our hearts need soothing.
In the silence the trees rustle;
They celebrate the joy of another day and whisper of tomorrow’s dreams.
Stop a while and listen
Feel every moment with your heart
This is love
Enjoy these wonderful captions of our beautiful country taken in the summer’s sun this June.
I love this little country of mine
