Sunday’s Brief Respite

Morning rain over the Thimble Islands.

Sunday’s brief respite from the summer heat was an invitation to step out for a walk this morning, and I am so glad I did. The nature trail by the marsh was serene and still, and for the first time in weeks, my heart was, too.

Juniper and Yarrow

Queen Anne’s Lace

Oak along the path

Goldenrod and summer green

Storm passing

Towering marsh grasses

Shore birds reflecting

Such stillness
