Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Blue sky and sunlight as clouds thin after this afternoon's downpour. A few joggers on the paths, a few fishermen, no boats; the lake full again; ducks unfazed. A goldfinch perches on a spent coneflower near the band shell and methodically plucks its seeds. The creek overflows its banks.
