The rain was cold today; it felt more icy than Autumn rain ought to feel, and it made me yearn for the warm months of summer where I would spend long days at my cottage, walking about in bare feet, laying in the grass, and basking in the sunshine. Here is a collection of photos I took on one of those dreamy summer days.
Cicadas singing all around me,
the glitter of sunshine, the sway of trees;
the lilies and the ferns dance in the breeze.
Butterflies kiss the open flowers,
blades of grass caress my summer skin.
Here I am renewed, for nature
knows no sin.
