Picnic Fare

September Picnic has a great recipe for a sandwich I'd like to make for you.
John Keawe is my cousin's cousin, and a great musician.  I'd like for him to come, bring his wife, make music and share some time with us.

My own photo stash lies slumbering in my old laptop-to be retrieved, but not by Monday.  Still, I cannot arrive empty handed-perhaps a poem will do?

Indian Summer
Warmth from a fading sun
Golden rays touched with the promise of icy blue winter
Dance one last dance
Before the earth sleeps
The drowsy time
Just before bedtime
Dozing in the easy chair
One last burst of color
Before the cold silences the earth until spring

I like your poem, so fitting. That does seem to be what Autumn is, one last dance before the earth sleeps.
Your blog is very interesting, & your dogs are adorable

Thank you for this lovely picnic poem. You sounded terrific as you recited it to us there on the hillside. What a lovely voice you have. The poem added that touch of literary class to the proceedings...

Soulbrush! These sandwiches are delicious. I've not had rose hip jelly before.
I love your poem - it's so true about autumn and perfect for the occasion. I'm so glad that you joined in the fun of picnic!

Debrah Kay! I typed Soulbrush in by mistake on my previous comment - The comment is for you of course! I think I've eaten too much - I'm a bit groggy.

Thanks for the music and poem. We needed some and it made a nice touch to the picnic.
I loved the doggie pics. We have 3 of them ourself. I'm a dog person. Dogs and I just naturally gravitate to each other.
Have a happy day!

Oh goody, an autumnal poetry reading! How eclectic, how cultured, how nice. Some of these girls have been quite rowdy at a few of the parties. I'm happy to see you have decided to add some refinement to this shindig!
