So much greenery everywhere you look,
perfumed air reverberates with birdsong.
Gorgeous outdoor scenery echoes internal moods,
promise of vacation trips get closer and closer...
Local newscasts once again warn of flooding,
storms, funnel clouds and high winds aplenty.
June is right around the corner, June the joyful
month still full of difficult times battling weather.
In deepest winter we long for sun's warmth,
gentle breezes, floral scents and outdoor fun.
Summer has its own difficulties, from grass that
shoots up fast to falling trees or twister devastation.
Still, one can pause and be thankful on summer's cusp,
take in the visual and olfactory banquet provided us.
Better than snow and ice and biting December gales...
To sit outdoors or in the water and tell tall tales.
Have a joyful and excellent summer one and all.
