AUGUST BREATH

AUGUST BREATH

The summer crowd
What was one with the sky
Sense the change
Each
They hang
Each 
Each one

The lawyers
The law
It is the law
Cruel but eternal
The lawyers must come

    Charmed by the title, Daver...but if it's a gusty "BREATH", I think I got lost in a mind blast. I keep rereading this, and though I'm sure it has a relevant significance...I'm still clueless.:( Best wishes...Love, Mikki

    Better hide, Daver, there's a lawyer on his way to your house now... (leave him hanging on this frightening note; better yet, hang all the lawyers) This is the time of year when all the political candidates are smearing each other in their campaign ads. I think I'd rather spend time with a lawyer than a politician. Very interesting write, my friend. Love, Carolyn

    Interesting thoughts in this one...I can just see maybe birds that nest in one place for the summer but migrate for the winter elsewhere..It would be nice if everyone had God's eternal law in their heart to guide them to do what is right...Sara
