August


July is turning to its end. The evenings become darker, but the warmth of the bright days still lingers in my limbs and the glory of summer caresses my mind.

Maybe it’s the dark and velvety August nights that are the best time in summer? I believe so and I’m welcoming August with anticipation, do come, and let me look at the stars that have been away for weeks while the night sky has remained pale blue. The Milky Way rushes through my veins, my blood is throbbing, and I’m ready to store the last drops of the smooth heat summer will give me.

You won’t find me here for some days –I’ll be in my private paradise. See you. In August.

A very sensual piece, Susu--both the writing and the artwork. Is the private paradise somewhere deep within your inner psyche or a physical location? Wherever it is, bon voyage!

Nice August summer evenings - with some crayfish? Have some nice time!

Kenneth, my private paradise is a physical location, an island with a cottage, but to enjoy it, also my inner psyche has to be in the mood. Thanks for the bon voyage.

Peter, no crayfish, but schnaps I could vote for:) With salmon. Thanks, I will enjoy!

A very beautiful picture for a very beautiful summer feeling. August can be very good - also without crayfish. Why do the Swedes always think about drinking? ;)

Don't know. HPY, it must be in the genes with Swedes. A little difficult to understand being a Finn...

This photo has taken my breath away, Susu. As I looked at it, all I could think was that this would fit perfectly with the other Susu Islands. Not sure how I'd deal with the reeds, but gee wizzikers! What a wonderful photo! Hmmm, I think a drink would be a perfect companion for me, a dish, a pair of Adirondack chairs and this view. :)

My Swedish drinking genes are now concentrated on wine (and champagne) only! "Fed up" of vodka after all my visits to Finland!

Enjoy your paradise, Susu! I hope I get to my own private P in August.

You wrote beautiful words. But I miss the summer already!

Susu Islands expand, Mick, go ahead and enjoy:)

"Fed up of vodka", Peter??? You swedes are funny:))

Elegia, I miss summer, too, just look outside tells me the winter is soon here! Storm and rain and bloody cold!
