Saharan Dust Shrouding Matagorda, Texas
oasis of light
a susurration of palms
The metallic drone of cicadas; desiccated and drooping crops; fish sinking toward cooler water even as rising temperatures slow life’s pace for body and mind: such is the arrival of midsummer on the Texas coast.
It’s a season suited for lighter fare, and so I’m offering a small series of images matched with poetry: tokens of a season I love.
Both the photo and haiku are mine.
