eventide.

june3b

come late june, the evenings stretch long and languid, into gossamer strands of gold, and dusk is but a rumor.

with all this light to fill, we gather heart shaped clover

june2

wend our way through a stack of tales

biblioph4

[pages rendered in every shade of bright]

biblioph20

and inhale the quiet of the kingdom plantae, delicate and bizarre.

june10

we stay up long past bedtime, and still find enough leftover light for
one last fruit salad snack

biblioph1

for touching small toes to a still-bright sky

june12

for one last simple story

biblioph24

and one (or sixty-two) final plunges down the slide.

june5

then we lumber inside on sleepy feet to shower and slumber and gather dreams of doing it all again tomorrow.
