A Spring to Summer Romance

he was not my type
but by the time it was spring
i wore that man's ring

once he wore me down
i flowered in the garden
of his sweet attentiveness
but began to droop
in the absence of his care. . . . 
July’s drought was hard to bear

that ring he gave me -
cheap like his lackluster love -
broke in mid-august

An Enjoyable Summer Eve

on my deck I watch
shadows crisscross sun’s last rays. . . . 
my skin still feels warm

driving from the gym
seeing the mountains darkened. . . . 
thinking of supper

the house is quiet
I savor all the morsels 
of my peaceful meal

At my computer
I click on my friends' poems. . . . 
night time’s joy fills me

Time is getting late 
From my bed I watch TV. . . .
moon peers through the blinds

curled up by my cats
as my eyelids grow heavy. . . . 
slumber land - take me

Awesome Summer

I'm yearning for break
Summer's the time of my life
Awesome! School ends soon

I'm hoping for break
Summer's the best time to swim
Let's go to the beach! 

I'm waiting for school
To come to an end at last
We all need time off! 

We all yearn for an 

Awesome summer

Sizzling Summer

Sizzling Summer

Heat hotter than breath.
Gasps squelched while sweat tickles skin,
Flop under the fan.

The sunburned girl smiles
Patches of warm memories
Some pain hurts so good.

You brighten the entire world

I see you peeking

Warm my face, dear sun

Hot Sand In Summer

Hot Sand In Summer

Hot sand in summer
Moon shines across the ocean
Just like your kisses

A peaceful evening
Gently caressing my arms
The shore swarms with love.

Summer Senryu

Cicadas' songs in still heat
  evoke the ghosts 
    of childhood

           Bring to birth nostalgic thoughts
           times far removed

A simpler life
  child's eye view
    all mysteries accepted

            Each day a calm

Which grew into itself, then
    into its nightfall

             The self I then was wandered,
              stumbling towards adulthood

And even now still haunts me
  when cicadas sing
    and children laugh

               Somewhere in the hazy heat
               Somewhere in the white distance

Time Flies Bye

      look down at the sky
tears wrinkle the calm waters
         vacation is over

Summer clouds

            **  I went outside and watched the summer sky....

Cotton in the clouds –
   If I cling on these softness,   
Will the wind find you?    

Slabs in the clouds –
   If I hop from cloud to cloud,
Will it lead to you?     .

Ladder in the clouds –
   If I climb the swirling stairs,
Will you be up there?

Bus in the clouds –
   If I ride on it, will it
Drop me off your path?

Pillows in the clouds –
   If I lay my head on it,
Will you lie with me?

                ** Hmm...
Floating in the clouds -
   Meryl Streep dancing with Clint*
in the kitchen floor. 

               **I went inside...Oops...

Cottons in the clouds –
   Children having pillow fights
I need you at home.

*(You & I)

summer peach

Tender light,
Sticky sweet,
Our lips meet.

Ready ripe,
Juicy, soft,
Lite nibble,

Taste of bliss,
Summer peach.

Vanity in Summer

Drip me wet, dry me
In heat blazing from your core
Summer stalks the trees

Wringing them dead dry
My veins collapse, and my leaves
Pants in sizzling air

You too drizzle sweat
Skin clammy with desire pants
Packing store, let's cool

Fore we move again
Through hydrant spray and crowd's glee
Spilling pipes reserve

My root journeys deep
Beyond surface love, I mine pools
From willing daydreams

My tongue sips the dew
Scorching the loins, shaking limbs
And breasting day's rest

Let us now retire
The city's silence by sun's fire
Come drizzle me rain.

Finally Tired

I listen for road noise

Summer and smoke

Summer and smoke soars
Together like snail and shell
…hot, high and happy
