Sounds of Summer:

Buzzing of a honeybee: Peaceful droning is a nod for a daytime nap.

Creaking harness: An old mule strains to plow the lower 40.

Profound silence in cool shade: An overhead sun plants shivering shadows.

Music in a riffle: A rocky stream sings summer's song.

Flight of a butterfly: Kaleidoscopic wings flitter in a garden.

A graceful vulture sails azure skies: Buzzards carried by currents among cumulus clouds.

Jagged lightning flashes: Thunder rolls in the rain.

A rainbow touches the earth: At its end is a pot of gold.

Blades of corn shoot upward: Tassels create golden grain.

Crickets chirp at approaching night. Lightning bugs flash signals.

Rasping sounds of a bullfrog: Nighttime voices of a moss-covered pond.

Katydid repeats its name in the night: A legendary forecast of frost.

To global warming enthuiasts, God says:

"As long as the earth endures,

seedtime and harvest,

cold and heat,

summer and winter,

day and night

will never cease." -- Genesis 8:22:

Moments of summer are life's memories. Summer 2019 arrives today (Friday) at 11:54 a.m.
