The remaining green days
You can see it....the days are growing shorter.
You can hear it...the katydids are clickin' away, singing their sad song of summer's end approaching.
It seems like the earth just sorta knows that it's time. The frogs are fattening up on summer bugs and sitting in the last of the warm sunshine while they can. The water hyacinths are reaching...reaching for whatever sun they can get. The perennials are dying off--growing weary of blooming. Even the grass is tired of trying--I don't think we've mowed in two weeks.
I'm ready though. I'm ready for cooler days and for resting a bit. Although I will miss all that green when it's not here.
