The First Week of August

The last bloom of the season for this tree.




"The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color. Often at night there is lightning, but it quivers all alone."

  1. Thank you. I was just thinking about my blog and how maybe starting it up again will inspire some writing. So, I decided to check yours and what do you know... you decided to start yours up as well. So thank you. I may have just found the inspiration I was looking for. :D
