The Wine Under the “Pergola”- July 8, 2014

ligohaibun_glassesSitting under the “pergola”* sipping wine, I with my white you with your rosé.  The wind gently rustling the leaves, a last streak of sun peeked through the darkening sky.

The children played tag nearby.  Soon it would be time for dinner.  Relaxing like this after a long day of trekking was the perfect way to pass the late afternoon.  Soon though, we would be leaving this corner of paradise, summer vacation was drawing to a close.  The children would be returning to school and we to our offices.

“E’ Pronto la cena!  Venite tutti!”** the owner of the guest-house called from the terrace door.

summer ends
sipping wine under the arbor
crickets chirp

** Dinner’s ready!  Come on everyone!
