Deliberately intentionally slow.
I took my stitching basket out to the deck this afternoon
surrounded by pansies and petunias
cilantro, shisu, parsley, oregano, & thyme,
purple and green basil
dill and tomato
under the umbrella,
finches twitter and chirp
at the feeder
the occasional wild turkey or two
or three or more wander by
down a private road
unseen by tourists
I am quiet
for a hummingbird
to drink while I just sit
We are companionable, we too.
The weather has improved immeasurably along the coast.
We have had sun for four days now
Temps in the mid-to high-80's
A bit humid; it rains nearly every night.
But never mind.
We have the sun
time to sit
