Sun and Corn

I snapped this photo after the kids husked the corn before dinner one night. It's rare that I appreciate anything that looks messy or unkempt--but this site of summer stopped me. I love how the late afternoon sun angles in on a summer tradition. Strewn husks, hundreds of pieces of corn silk. An unspoken promise of deliciousness.

Soon, that sun will be long gone at this time of day.

And so, sadly, will be the deliciousness of that sweet, fresh corn. Life just turns and turns doesn't it?

Again, why can't summer last forever?
