we wake to clouds and cool morning air
i work in the garden, deadheading and weeding a bit
later there are errands, and before i am home, the sun breaks through
to perfect PNW weather. . .
the dog and i walk in the evening and spot two frogs,
several ducks and each have a handful of blackberries for dessert
he sits patiently as we take turns, one for him, one for me
i can feel fall in the air i tell him . . .
