a perfect summer pasture like a giant modern painting

Those who dwell among the beauties
and the mysteries of the earth

are never alone or weary of life

Rachel Carson

green grass and golden hay
a big sky with perfect cloud ships sailing slowly by
only the sounds of the wind and insects busy
the most perfect spot to lay, hidden awhile
away from it all ... just me and my girl
we are happily lost here ... in this place

2. more green and gold and daisies 3. Winnie Dixon wading in still waters, ocean and sky meld into a lost horizon 4. the most amazing little flowers that begin as tight tiny pink balls and gradually unfurl into these complicated frayed beauties 5. complex and beautiful other small worlds exists here - if you pause to take notice 6. Queen Anne's lace, tall and beautiful is blooming everywhere - their blooms a sign of summer's waning.
