Roberta, I like this. That's the way it is here. The flowers are drooping, the weeds thriving. Thanks for posting.

Bumblebees vanish
into the bud of a yellow hollyhock

then reappear dusty with pollen
willow leaves are turning yellow

fluttering to the parched ground
summer has taken a turn

a cool front is moving in
rain, nothing but a spit in the dust

Hummingbird feeders
abandoned, v’s of geese head
