Summer days in Maine aren’t always perfect, but they often are…sunny and dry with a touch of breeze and just enough warmth to create a sense of vacation-time ease. The trees and grass in their plant wisdom know that this optimal season for making sugar from sunlight does not last long and they throw themselves into the business of photosynthesis with abandon. When night falls, the warm, oxygen-rich air beckons us out under the trees. If the moon is full, as it was last night, the beauty is enough to seem uncanny. Who wouldn’t be drawn to this vibrant world of clear silver light and the velvet darkness between leaves.
Road of silver light
creatures travel in their dreams—
full moon of summer
