Crickets call. Fireflies twinkle across the field. Children asleep. It is just about dark.
Peonies and roses still let their scents sneak out into the dark air. Fresh cut grass lingers under the dew. Pineapple plants and dirt.
A small breeze. Peepers singing in the pond and the ditch. The air cools. A few cars hush past. The solstice prepares its visit.
In winter it would have been dark for hours by now. The green world grays. Later, the moon will rise. Quiet.
