As the days grow colder ...

and the nights get darker,
she remembers summer days ... 
fields of Tuscan sunflowers ...
 and tinkling bells around the necks of mountain goats ... 
Gingerly crossing a gently swaying bridge,
suspended over a river ...
swimming in clear mountain water.
She remembers the unending sound of water over rock,
cricket clicks, heat haze blur
 and the warmth of the sun on her face.
She has a longing in her that will not go away ...

I'm really missing the sun and warmth too. All this rain has been very dreary.

It has only rained for the past three days but it feels like a lifetime ago since the warm summer sun.

Time to book a holiday then! I know just how you feel but we shouldn't complain, it's not even cold. It's the dark and dreariness that gets to me. xx

I hate winter. I know there are many people who love it. But try as I might, I can't.

As much as I miss the freshness of Summer I love the crunchy sounds of Fall. We live at the edge of a forest and have a busy population of squirrels and chipmunks collecting Winter's stash.

You should live here where the summer is still going on...29 Celcius at the moment! And I should live where you are, I hate this weather, too much sun...

Such lovely memories. I know what you mean about the longing. Two years ago I went to New Mexico, and I yearn for it.
