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

Written by Andrea Dietrich/Aug. 20, 2011

Inspired by Francine Roberts'

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

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

The Sunburned Girl

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

Long Summer Days Soon

She had a baby
today.  She's only sixteen.
Long summer days soon.

When Summer Lingered

met one such as you
in garden of long ago
when summer lingered

Time Flies Bye


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