Lingering Flame Of Summer

Gracefully standing in the flower bed as autumn winds gently caress her glowing petals, the Stella de Oro daylily begins dancing through the air.  The ballad of autumn matches her beat with a cascading mixture of rustling leaves, the sweet melody of birds singing and the drumbeat of acorns raining down.  The last lingering flame of summer shimmers in the shadows dreaming of an encore.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment!🙂 It has been a while since I have been able to write, but the other day nature provided the words when I brought home a few Stella de Oro blooms from my mother’s. I was experimenting with abstract shots in the backyard and as the heat of summer made a drastic return, I listened to the chipmunks scampering through the leaves with the echo of acorns hitting the barn.🙂
