SYNTHESIZERS IN THE SAND

SYNTHESIZERS IN THE SAND V

It’s like living in a light bulb, with the leaves
Like filaments and the sky a shell of thin, transparent glass
Enclosing the late heaven of a summer day, a canopy
Of incandescent blue above the dappled sunlight golden
on the grass…

— From Sally’s Hair by John Koethe

SYNTHESIZERS IN THE SAND IV

ssis4colored2

Some old favorites, new hotnesses and other assorted discoveries from the summer. Enjoy!

When summer’s end is nighing
And skies at evening cloud,
I muse on change and fortune
And all the feats I vowed
When I was young and proud.

— AE Housman

Looking overhead he saw that the stars had come out, but why should he seem to see Andromeda, Cepheus, and Cassiopeia? What had become of the constellations of midsummer? He began to cry.*

Summer sunset. Just time for one last dip.
