A Lazy Summer Scene - a Duo-rhyme


Iced tea's sipped from a mason jar.
Lemon sun squirts light from afar.
Ruffled parasols relieve some
from relentless heat as green thumbs
plant colorful chrysanthemums.
Barefeet tap to the earth's rhythm.
On sighing summer breeze, bees hum.
Perched on the front porch swing, I strum
a simple chord as neighbors come
and join the carefree song. They drum
to the lazy day's mellow bars
until our light shines from the stars.

    How I do love this welcoming poem, ...makes me want to wrangle an invitation to come and enjoy some ice tea with you! What a wonderful picture you have painted of your front porch! (I'm pleased to share this spot with you, Rhonda!)

    Rhonda, I so enjoy seeing enjambment in a poem like this. Your entry came along toward the end of my contest and I had already fallen in love with Carrie's and then I saw this one, and I just adored it too. Your poem is so delightful. You have captured perfectly the imagery of this lazy summer scene. Congrats on your number one place!
