Last Stand: a #tankaprose

A clear sky, with all the radiant sunlight the lawn and leaves can imbibe, and more. A soft breeze that just sets the chimes’ melody with a whisper of song. The cicadas and grasshoppers, along with the non-migratory birds, carry on their own harmony. Not a hint of humidity.

Forecasters talk of temperatures reaching the 80’s (F). A classy way for summer to go out.

Why can’t I rest in this

for the rest of September?
