            A vivid blue sky with no beginning and no end.  Pleasantly warm with low humidity. Doing ordinary tasks of no importance, one at a time, in no hurry to complete.  I pull weeds in a corner of the yard.  The sun on my back, pouring strength into my bones, sending an energy to my hands.

                                                 hidden in the trees
                                                a multitude of birds
                                                tuning up

            No one else about. Just squirrels and chipmunks on private business.  We ignore each other and complete our tasks.
                                                my shadow mincing along
                                                beside me

                                    billowing clouds
                                           in the valley
                                                 a bouncing sun

                                                          THE HAT

It was once my father-in-law's fishing hat.  A natural straw with a four inch crown and a three inch rim.  It's become a mainstay in my summer attire.  Sun shade, fashion accessory and mood adapter.  With part of the rim down and worn at an angle, I'm mysterious and ready for a romantic lunch.  Worn back with the entire rim turned up I'm jaunty and young.  Worn centered with rim completely down I'm all business.

                                                store front window–
                                                my reflection in between
                                                two mannequins
