Summer is a rainbow
of lilies abloom
scenting the incense rising
to ask for benediction
of long awaited raindrops
refreshing the soul.
Wow! It’s been a full week since I last saw this blog. I don’t know what it was but it seems the vacation bug hit me. Well, it was little things – children’s activities, household chores, heat, and plain inability to string words together kept me away. I was thinking that my ability/desire to write poems or anything (which I really liked) was gone. I was thinking I only had some limited words and ideas and that one day, they will run out. I thought that that day had come and I was kind of mourning the loss. 🙂
Anyway, my own worries aside, I just want to say “hello” to all of you with these flowers. They came from our little garden. The daylilies came with the house. The previous owners of our place apparently loved lilies because not only do we have several hues of daylilies here, but also a few Aisiatics and stargazers.
Then, when we moved in, not knowing what we already have, I planted a few more bulbs of stargazer lilies and yellow Asiatic lilies. Unfortunately, some of my bulbs died when I moved them to a different area in our yard.
Lilies bloom only once, unfortunately. They bloom when the summer is peaking. They bloom at just the perfect time. Their beauty and fragrance makes gives a wonderful purpose to that dreaded summer heat. 🙂
Thank you for coming by. I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer. 🙂
