Early August & Announcement

Early August

Pleasant days flow forward,

each following another.

Some hot and steamy,

with afternoon showers

to water the gardens,

clean and refresh the air.

Scent of lilies and ripe grasses
flood the senses,

cicadas’ raspy voices lift

on August’s light currents.

When the singular sound

becomes howl of winter winds,

these balmy hours will seem

only summer’s mirage.
