My windows face west and sunsets never disappoint, but sometimes I long for shadows soft and lean between us some dappled shade. I hunt cool garden corners when our summer sun dips behind the shaggy rainforest mountains at 10PM.
(The August Poetry Postcard Project was initiated by Paul Nelson of Seattle, WA. It challenges poets to write a poem a day in one go with no revisions on a postcard. Afterwards, the postcard is mailed to other participants. This is my second year and I had fun making friends along the way. I will be sharing the postcards here, most of which are printed with my photos.)
