Late July, given heavy rain and sun,

I’ll follow the path to view Gull’s Rock.

With sun directly overhead I venture on,

thimbleberries tempt me off the trail.

The flavor of summer—

tart, yet sweet they are fireworks,

popsicles, picnics, parades

and remind me that

this season ends too quickly.

I savor each tiny fullness.
