Wednesday morning

July 14, 2021

Just as  the morning sun topped the trees,
cutting through the early warmth
I felt the slightest kiss of a cool breeze;
not more than a puff and then gone.

A few yards away a squirrel was watching me.
I stopped and watched him. “Did you feel it too?”
He looked away as if to disagree.
I tossed him a peanut and he was gone.

My question remained.

I walked and thought about summer trickling away.

    That’s beautiful. The feeling of a friendly spirit on the breeze and the acknowledgement of a squirrel. I love it!
