Night Time Comes To Cape Ann MA




Summer is winding down on Cape Ann yet the sky is still looking rather summery. This photo is similar to another one posted but the sun is more prevalent here. It was taken at an outdoor concert and felt so inspiring and divine. My blessing bowl was full. (see previous post about 'blessing bowl', 'begging bowl'.)

haiku

(prompt was commit)


persevere on path
life commit to self, being
dance while you can, now.
-o-

others frequently
know their wants,needs in living
commit time to self.
-o-

always asking you
everyone looking for something
commit to yourself first.
-o-

  22. That is a beautiful shot! Sad to think that soon it will be too cold (but hopefully not too snowy)for summery outdoor activities.

  71. Hope you continue to enjoy summer weather before winter comes. It's been very cool here and tonight, I sat on the back porch wearing a wool sweater. Quite comfortable! Winter is closer than I think...LOL...and today saw a wooly worm that had NO black...brrrrr, means a long, cold, snowy winter or so I've been told.
