warmth of summer sun
butterfly basks in the glow
breaks free, flies alone
I just ♥ the word: halcyon.
The Autumn Leaves is a song that I often have running through my mind, especially this time of year. As I mention in this post, it was also a Nat King Cole tune, that my beloved Grandma cherished.
And the movie of the same name is also one that I have never forgotten.Quite a “racy” film for its time (1956) and definitely with some disturbing content.
But, if you are a fan of Joan Crawford and/or movies from the 40s/50s like I am, do check this one out.
It also features a young and oh, so handsome Cliff Robertson. Also starring, Lorne Greene in a role that is far removed from his later, fatherly image at the Ponderosa Ranch in the Bonanza TV Series. 😉 He’s a real naughty boy in this one!
I can’t believe it’s almost September, can you? 😉
The summer has just flown by for me.
I’m still busy with some summer commitments and activities but hope to be back to regular blogging in the next couple of weeks.
I hope you have had a wonderful summer so far and it’s not quite over yet, is it?
How has your weather been?
Thankfully, the temps. have finally cooled down, here in BC. It’s been a VERY hot, dry summer with too many forest fires reeking havoc. 😦
Plan to spend more time outside and to work on several projects in progress too.
I wish all my readers a happy, healthy and memorable summer. May it be your best one ever! 🙂
I’ll be back to blogging before autumn, hope to see you then.
We reached 34C, one day last week and more warm weather is apparently on the way, very soon.
Right now we are having a bit of a cool spell, with rain and that’s welcome too. 🙂 Takes care of all the dust!
Hope you enjoy these three summer haiku/haiga from the archives, celebrating all things to come. It’s going to be a good summer, I just know it! 😉
Have a Wonderful Week!
First snow of season.
A “Christmas-card” view, beckons.
Digging out the boots.
Snowshoes. City park.
Untouched, winter wonderland.
Flash of white rabbit.
A new year begins.
Fresh palette, possibilities.
Raise a glass of cheer!
I hope your year is off to a great start. 🙂
