July 6 and July 9, 2020

Lightning bugs
branches ripe with leaves breeze
swaying against evening purple sky

The small rabbit eating wild lettuce
in our back yard
sometimes in sun
sometimes in shade
able to hide below our grass

Sitting on the front steps
cicadas rise and fall in waves
wind through the trees

Lightning bugs in the grass near the street

Heat still in the evening
the neighbor walks her dog and says hello

Later, rain and lightning
