Too Hot to Breath!

"To love is not to look at one another: it is to look, together, in the same direction." ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

"Catch on fire with enthusiasm and people will come for miles to watch you burn."
~ John Wesley

"For one swallow does not make a summer, nor does one day; and so too one day, or a short time, does not make a man blessed and happy." ~ Aristotle


~ Doesn't this beautiful spot look like paradise.. Cool and refreshing.. It feels like it's 500* in the shade.. I know it isn't.. but it sure is hot.. rain has teased me for the last week and even dripped a little on all area's except here.. Actually I think four fat drops did fall on top of the barn yesterday..as I saw four narrow wet stripes when the dogs and I panted around the place late yesterday afternoon.. I have been shaking Cooper's treasured rain stick all day and as soon as it's dark I plan on doing the butt naked rain dance out by the chicken yard... So if a violent storm comes up later y'all will know what happened.. If you would like to then you could do your own dance too.. surely if we all do the butt naked rain dance at once.. we will scare up a nice storm that will cool things off..The chickens are rolling around in the dirt stirring up a cloud of dry dust and the pig lies grunting in the mud.. I am sure she was inviting me to join her earlier and believe me.. if not for the smell I just might.. I wish I knew where there was a good.. clean.. cold creek that we could go and lay in until we were cool.. Ah the good old summer time!!..

On a good note my peas and corn fresh from the garden made a delicious meal.. we had those for lunch along with some sliced red tomatoes.. also from our garden.. I cooked some sausages and some garlic bread to round things out but I could have just had the veggies myself.. I sure hope that where ever you are you are staying out of the heat... realizing that it is way too hot to do much of anything I have posted a few poems for you to think about until time for the rain dances to begin.. Have a safe and wonderful summer day!


Summer Breeze

summer wind whistles
through sunny flower garden~
blue bird wings flutter.

Time to Dance ( ~Music)

Melodies pulsing through my soul
Undulating symphony of rock and roll
Strumming rhythms.. electric heat
Instrumental with a jazzy beat
Chords and lyrics.. Microphones
~~Bring delicious wiggles to my bones.

greedily slithers away

In the Afternoon

a diamond back suns
in gravel strewn arroyo~
lobo pups wrestle
