Summer is Fruiting

on a gentle breeze
i heard the mountains call to me

in the forest i found berries 
ripe as can be


huckleberries are a treasured food in Montana!

i dinned next to this river
listening to it's song
enjoying the stir of the air that it brought to life

mountain ash offering berries for the birds
splashes of color
for our eyes

savoring each blossom

treasuring the tiny realm

butterflies basked in the sun

enjoying rain after a hot summer
lovely late summer days to you


Breathing in Summer

summer is true

to its spirit this year

hot days

cool nights

thunder storms
most days

flowers and grasses blooming

insects thriving
and occasional rains

my heart sings
