August, Like a Quick Kiss

Last of the Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota)...

“August rushes by like desert rainfall,
A flood of frenzied upheaval,
Expected, but still catching me unprepared.
Like a matchflame bursting on the scene,
Heat and haze of crimson sunsets.
Like a dream of moon and dark barely recalled,
A moment,
Shadows caught in a blink.
Like a quick kiss;
One wishes for more, but it suddenly turns to leave,
Dragging summer away.”
–  Elizabeth Maua Taylor

  1. Nancy, You are a Grandmother. Do you get Public Broadcasting Service in Canada? Check my Sept. 1 post for details. :-)

    This is a beautiful little silhouette of a seemingly rested little plant!

  2. Beautiful photo. It looks great against your blog background as well. I don’t mind saying good-bye to August. Here it is the end of Winter rather than Summer but the end of August always makes me think about how fast the year is going.

  3. Beautiful shot. You must be very agile to be able to get close to the ground shots like this.
    I will blow a kiss to August tonight. I hope it takes this 95º heat with it when it goes.

    BTW, I hope Earl veers to the open sea.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
