watercolor words

predawn sky
paints a background
for the new roses
in the blue vase

I watch the light
every day

June’s beautiful
days grew longer
as Spring became
Summer

hosta plants grow
and soon the flowers
will bring hummingbirds

then the wonderful
change to August
and many days
until then

and the light changes
all the time and I often
know by how the light falls
the time, month, season
