honeysuckle, rain, damp dirt
and peony and gardenia
fresh cut wood and fresh cut grass
campfire (and burnt marshmallow)
tomato plant, and warm, vine-ripened tomato fruit
watermelon and honeydew and a charcoal grill
a house with all windows open
washing brought in from the line
thunderstorm, rain and clean river water.
frogs of all sizes
crickets and cicadas
owls calling from tree to tree, and the almost-imperceptible rustle
and silence of their wide, graceful, dangerous glides.
Rain and river water,
ceiling and box fans
and happy birds in the trees,
distant rolling thunder and working bees
and live outdoor music from down the block,
and children laughing outside.
