    on Shore Promenade
    hints of autumn
    August breeze


    yellow boots
    splash in puddles
    her smile, the sun


                                                sun heats up
       sidewalks and tempers
           clouds take refuge


    backyard rumble
    raccoons amuse
    the indoor cat
