Bolder August

Photobucket

Early afternoon sunshine
Chases us up the driveway
Bolder and surer than August sun
Should probably be.

Photobucket

Kids playing,
Neighbors up and down the street -
The sidewalks alive
With shouts and strollers.
And busy Sunday get-it-dones.

Photobucket



Photobucket


But these are the moments
You brush aside the gently cool shade
of every-day oblivion

Photobucket

To catch your life's meaning
And purpose.
To hold it -
Breathless -
And to know it.

And then let it go on
Into this bolder August.
