What makes an almost perfect summer evening?
Light breezes coupled with low humidity and warm, not too hot, temperatures.
Time spent with a friend(s), walking, cycling, or just sitting on the front porch or listening to water lapping the shore at the lake.
Good conversation floating casually across the space that separates friends.
A journey through a landscape of sunlight and shade, native prairie mixed with sage and chlorophyll green growth, and deep green corn reaching skyward for center pivots.
A great blue heron standing still like a statue, feathers unruffled by the wind, unflinching, a symbol calm and peace.
A field of vibrant yellow wildflowers, shaded tiger lilies, or heliotropic sunflowers not yet dried out by a succession of rainless days.
Ah summer evening's such as these, if only sunset's end could be delayed for a while longer.
