June Bug

buzzing June bug
of iridescent green
whispers softly
“come fly with me”
over rolling hills
and deep valleys
over canting barns
and garden patches
over grazing cattle
and pecking chickens
to a time and place
that slumbers gently
in my mind
of
endless summer days
and long dusty roads
cool shaded woods
and gurgling rocky streams
possum-grape vines
and blackberry thickets
an old weathered house
perched on the hill
of my distant childhood
so fondly remembered
viewed through
rose-colored lenses
of kindly Time

  7. I’ve noticed a lot of fireflies this month for some reason. I don’t remember seeing them since I was a kid. It’s really been great watching them glowing all over the woods when I let the dogs out.

      We have quite a few around here. I like to sit outside at twilight and watch the show begins.

    Very nice! I love it when writing evokes pictures in my mind, and this certainly does that.
