nothing lasts forever
i really shouldn't complain.
it is and has been hotter almost
everywhere else. a lot, if not most
of my neighbors are celebrating
the heat and no rain.
because of those weather
satellites i could see the heat
was coming. the most
fantastically unrealistic part of
my imagination kept trying to
find ways to put a big cooling
umbrella over us, a bubble to keep
out too much heat. the peonies
and sweet peas are just opening
and it would be nice if they could
stay around for a while and not get
blasted in a day or two.
i like lingering irises and
alliums and violas and so many
others. i love the rain but i don't
mind if it comes only at night, i
just need it to come often enough.
so many different people so many
different flowers and gardens
so many different versions of
paradise and what it is...will be...could be.
