Two Summer Poems

sheer curtain blowing

 

Here are two poems that I wrote for summer.  I know that the season is on its last legs but we need to pause and appreciate all its beauties until the last moment.

 

Summer Breeze

Summer breeze is a dancer

of exquisite grace.

Her skirts billow on the window sill,

twirling to a waltz,

lifting and swirling to an unheard score,

performing shadow ballet

across a sunlit floor.

 

 

Cantata

And the sun comes

Suddenly

through the trees –

a blessing of warmth

upon grass and leaf,

curling up dripping boughs,

lifting insects

from their secret purposes,

calling forth creepers

brooding beneath stones,

inspiring humble croakers

to choruses and arias

after the rain.

  1. Mollie, I am in agreement that we need to pause and enjoy summer until its last moments. Your poems truly do capture the gentleness and preciousness of it. I am loving having my windows open.
