waiting for autumn

Ok, so my Hubby just noticed I was sitting in my easy chair with my laptop on my outstretched legs and my head bobbing.  When asked what I was doing I had to admit I was imagining being a camel walking across the desert.

beach

Carpe Diem #1222 Beach

Mediterranean Seacoast, Nice, France, 7-2-2017 
cool blue
breeze skips across
pebbly seashore
bare skin soaks up
the sun's gaze
