Summer's Visit

Thank you to Ruth Ayers!
and join in the #celebratelu

So thankful a special guest finally arrived this past week for a visit.  "Thanks for showing up Summer!"

"Oh, you're quite welcome!  I enjoy returning every now and then."

"I just want you to know how grateful I am that I could spend a little wedge of time enjoying your company before I return to work next week.  Here's what I loved most about you today:

  • rays of Sun shining down to warm my family as we splashed at the pool
  • breezes to cool us as we walked around the shore of the tiny lake
  • puffs of white cloud playing hide and seek with your friend Sun
  • music floating around us bringing us to move to the beat
  • bright light night as Moon visits full for the second time this month
  • reminders from your cicada friends that your visit will be coming to an end

So, thank you Summer for sharing your special qualities!  We've adored your visit!  Could you please stay just a smidge longer?"

"W e  l  l,   m a y be..."


  1. Amy, love that you're talking directly to summer! And glad that she has cooperated at least a little bit. Enjoy this last week, too. That Lake Anna looks wonderful!

  2. Your words transported me. I used to have my kids kiss summer goodbye in a writing piece. And then we embraced festive fall. It was cathartic for all of us!

  3. I celebrate with you today---for summer mysteries!

  4. Summer days are coming to an end for me; although, the heat will stay for at least 2 more months. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment.

  5. What a lovely idea - formally thanking summer. I was just thinking I will go read outside to enjoy a little bit of summer this afternoon. :)

  6. Your post reminded me of a Paul Simon lyric. Do you remember the Sounds of Silence. The picture and the post are beautifully crafted and left me with feelings of nostalgia.

  7. :) Well, this is why we all love Summer. Thanks for this prose ode!

  8. Amy, what a delightful post.I'm catching up after a wonderful summer weekend with the family in Cape May. I think it was quite clever to thank summer for making such a wonderful entrance. I am hoping that you will add a poem of your thoughts to the photo for Summer Splashings. What do you say? Information is at


I love hearing from you! Please add your comments and let's have a conversation!
