The End of Summer

Tomorrow, the school year begins again, but today, as a last gift of summer, the gardenia bush unfurled a blossom. Surprising really, given what little care I have given it these past few months. I have never had much luck with the heavy-scented flowers. But benign neglect won.

It shivered with rain drops in the early morning. An invitation to linger just a little longer in a summery state of mind.
