August offers up a universe of lovely bouquets:
A dazzling pink galaxy of flowers;
Yellow suns floating in the wind;
Or a floral star in the sky;
And, finally, an orange planet
Of gorgeous, sunlit petals.

A couple of weeks ago, we woke up
To the eerie sight of a world wrapped in
A cocoon of spider webs.
The sparkling grass
Rocked a small web hammock to sleep.
A luminous spider
Hung suspended on a necklace of pearls.
And I saw the universe
Beautifully reflected in a row
Of crystal dew drops.

There’s gold in the August sky
And a golden in the water.
Life doesn’t get much better than this!

August: hot days, cool quiet mornings, school starts next week. Shining sun and clouds – a premonition of autumn.
It’s a time to savour: hold on just a little longer to those long light nights that are already getting shorter. A time to remember that the sun shone high in the sky well past 10.30 at night.
It’s a time for sweaty or wet (depending on the weather) blueberry picking in the mosquito-haunted woods. And for lingering swims in warm waters. And ice cream.
August is a time to love and hate with its dazzling days that can turn chilly on a whim, with those glorious sunsets putting on a peacock show of colours earlier and earlier.
It’s a time to enjoy the blossoms of summer, even as they wither on the stem.
A bit like life really.
