The Taste of Summer


Strong as heat lightning.
Sweet as a summer night's sky
sprinkled with fireflies.

Those look yummy! We had some wild blackberries at our house this year. It was so much fun!

My eyes are drawn to the light reflected off the dark berries. I'll take mine with a little bit of cream!

Yeah, when we experience summer with it's heat and dry spells, we might complain, but then November arrives. We always long for the colors and life of summer...
