The lawn mowers are quiet,
having gone in for supper.
The evening song of birds
comes from trees
casting long shadows of cool
across yards and porches.
The setting sun paints
everything it touches
in yellows and gold.
A gentle breeze blows across
softly creaking rocking chairs
enjoying after dinner iced tea.
So the evening song goes to dusk
and crickets, frogs and foxes take over
to serenade the moon.

Yeah, could see and feel it all, my friend.

Now if I could just get the neighbors' dog to shut-up and listen to the foxes for a change, it would really be great!

Jimmy, I'm delighted to have taken you "there"  because I'm just bringing you all "here" to me. Oh, and about those dogs, foxes torment the heck out of our coon hounds and I'm sure they do your neighbor's dogs too. ~L

Well Ali, I thought I was bringing you to mine, but if it took you to yours then we can sit on our porches together. ~L
