Persisting

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is “as summer fades.”


You can’t see any rain in this picture, but this was taken a few days ago around sunset, while it was raining, which rarely happens.
This evening, I noticed this flower. I don’t think summer is going anywhere anytime soon, especially not in California.

I’ve got nothing for a poem this evening (even though this is usually the time of week when I share a Sijo), but I don’t want to force it. The theme for this week’s Sijo is persistence, though, so maybe….

Nothing coming, ideas stuck like a truck broken down,
Carrying precious cargo; fix the engine and let it go
Break through barriers, and with persistence reach the destination
