Sweet Early Summer Morning
In between the summer showers I took advantage of the cooled air to sit and enjoy a corner of my garden. In this corner deep blue Morning Glory reseeded itself from last year’s planting – I should say, reseeded itself wildly. I love the way it is growing up the whimsical Crape Myrtle arbor Dearest made for me and how it is covering the ground below it.
I set my sweet teacup alongside this beautiful Sadler teapot – to enjoy the brief sunshine, the moist air and the chorus of the song of the birds. It is a good Monday morning, full of potential and of joy.
Early Summer Morningby James Tipp
Like a lovers embrace.
The birds sang, the river ebbed.
All is at peace.
The heat of the summer sun,
Shrouded for a time,
Drawing up the vapour
Like gathering in the harvest.
We too look for a son
To be warmly embraced
Gathered into his presence.
While we wait, we are warmed.
The spirit moves across the earth
Drawing people to himself
Into the summer of eternity
I love what the rain does to the morning air, mingling the fragrance of the flowers and the grass – the air seems so sweet this morning.
I’ll enjoy the outdoors while I can, we’re slated to have pop-up thunderstorms throughout the day. I hope you’re having a sweet Monday morning enjoying the blessings of another day.
