haibun #20

For a few hours this afternoon it was quite warm and humid. Driving home with the windows open the air was heavy with perfume from the magnolias that seem to burst into bloom all around us. It brought to mind long drowsy afternoons filled with the drone of bees. I heard a snore come from the backseat. I had to shake myself awake to remember the road.

open windows
drawing honey thick air;
magnolia in bloom

Honey-thick air. Lovely.

I love this. I've missed reading your poetry and looking at your photographs. Why did I let life get in the way?!

You're making me sleepy, too!
