Morning Meditation: Summer’s Last


September’s begun, and summer nears its end. While walking in town the other day, these hot pink verbenas greeted me with all their verve and boldness as I turned the corner, defiant of the calendar and weather.

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Susan, this is a beautiful post. This morning I walked out on my back porch to snip some basil and oregano for an omelet. I drew in the pungent fragrance of basil and thought, “ahhh, that good summer scent that send me to the kitchen!” Sad to see it go, but like your verbena, it is holding on nicely.

    • Thank you, Susan! The way you describe the basil took me into a heaven-sent euphoria. Because of that, I made a note to myself to buy pots for my patio so I can once again grow those delightful herbs next season. I haven’t done that in four years; it’s time— 🙂
