Fireworks

Coiling up
It bursts into the air
Leaving cloud like puffs
To move in the air
Where it disappears to
No one quite sure
Not even I 
Or the wisest of all

July

A boy called Dapo
Egocentric fellow
Girls howl in July's kisses
Lies, monthly nursed
Of purple quills rinsing sweet tales
Universally versed with X-rayed
Youthful Zeal

Where restless 
Lions

roar

The Job of Paint is that of cream

Yes, Friend

cruising in the manner of an expert...
 
jaguar thats aquired that of the complex features.

similar to that of a racing team.

freshly painted, with the color of fallin snow.

the inside is creamy.

Island Breeze

I hear and see:
Hot pavement, 
Green house,
Boardwalk,
The sound of children's talk
The sun,
watching all the fun
Palm trees
Shifting in the breeze
Blue sky
Green leaves
Bougainvillea trees,
Red and vibrant
That's how you can tell you're on an island

Daydreams of Snow

As I’m pushed away by summer’s breeze
Flakes of white fall upon my brow
I wish for the earth beneath to freeze
To shield me from how days are now

These months have been so long and cruel
I’m ever so blind while the sun reigns
Therefore, I’ll dream of winter’s cool
To take away my summer pains

After The Storm -1-

After the storm ends the sun peeks through the clouds, the rain stops suddenly the thunder clapped clear and loud. Nature is being replenished by a summer storm, it's nice to see the sun again but, I know storm clouds, when they form. Copyright © Cynthia Jones July.14/2006

Independance Day

Our flag we fly
That's red white and blue
Is the symbol of all independence
That God gave to me and to you
He made this country so very beautiful
With flowers, trees, and birds that fly
And created the rainbows so high in the sky
How lucky we all are to be
Living with independence
In our country, the land of the brave and the free

Goodbye Gwynne

(Dedicated to Fred Gwynne who died July 2, 1993. He starred as Herman 
Munster.)

You had bolts in your neck and a flat head.
Your skin was green and you were undead.
When people saw you, they screamed and ran.
You were very funny and you were also a scary man.
I loved to see you frighten people and make them flee.
But sadly the world lost you in July of 1993.

Those Good Tomatoes

Those Good Tomatoes

		Chicago, South Side

Late July and I am waiting 
for those good tomatoes
brought to the city from farms

on trucks with a swinging scale,
brought to the city 
and into the alleys 

by Greeks and sons
in late July 
and early August,

tomatoes so red they reign 
on the sills of my mind all winter
too perfect to eat. 

Donal Mahoney

Short July poem by Rylea Judas| Details | |

Summertime

 Have you heard?
Winter is gone,
And now trees grow strong
Healthy and flourishing 
The wind is low
However so warm
Is there a way the heat could way down
For it is like the fire has set
Ablaze upon your very skin
But the water so cold,
Has died down that raging heat
Swimming through
The waters graze the sunburnt skin of yours
Which occurs only in the summer time.

Short July poem by A.E. Rivenbark| Details | |

Lady Noon

Gliding in on the hot summer wind, Lady Noon
The phosphorescent pied piper of the Dune
Our infamous Pearl of July
Sand paper tears spring to my eye

Her sultry petrichor perfume
Scratches our parched throats
Our hardened arms exhume
The first crop of oats

And I fell for her,  clay red and dry
Befuddled by her beauty, sweet
Her tongue dowsed me in deceit
Heat stroke melodies, her siren’s cry

Short July poem by sarah huburn| Details | |

Seeing seasons

I'm thankful, for the dew resting on the mountain tops and the deep rivers of the valleys.

I'm thankful, for you putting the trees in place and for the birds that nest there.

Thank you Lord, for the changing of seasons and for the way clouds represent this.

Thank you Lord, that when i stop and wonder along the way. I become more thankful for all 
you have created and the overwhelming beauty of it all.

Short July poem by Brian Otoole| Details | |

My love

        My love, is you 
       My love is pure of heart
     And with my love I give you my all
    With my love I won't shed tear to the cloud 
My love is everlasting can't you understand me
My love is like some roaring ocean just to have you near
  And with loves grace I abide by you
  My love will go on as long as you will stay
With the stars that shine for us as long as you'll accept
                   My love

Short July poem by John Le| Details | |

It's Summer


In the bushes, crickets are chirping.
The sun is down in the western sky.
Two birds fly by.

Above the grass, lighting bugs are flashing.
Birds are picking at the ground a lot.
A squirrel is eating an apricot.

A slice of the moon is shining.
The colors of the day are starting to fade.
The green dims in each grass blade.

The hot day ends and it’s time to cool down. 
The leaves are still.
Maybe it will.

Short July poem by Connie Moore| Details | |

Kathy

Today I Have to Tell You
How Very Proud I Am
Remember How it Used to Be
How You Hit the Big "Grand Slam?"

Then You Went out on Your Own
And Set the World on Fire
You Beat the Odds and Won
It Was Your Hearts Desire

Oh to See You Fight
When Things Got in Your Way
I Really Couldn't Ask for More
But There's Something I must Say

Forever I Shall Love You
I Love You like No Other
I Hope You'll Always Need Me
Because I Am Your Mother
