Sometimes In Summer

Sometimes in summer
The moon blows out the sunlight
And the blue rivers
Above...become a dark sea
Birds and bees swim in the nude

    Returned to re-read this one. A great little write. I'm surprised it "only" got a HM. I had it pegged as a winner. Well done. Robert.

    This is really cute . I do love the waYy you portray the birds, bees and sky. However, have you ever seen a naked bird. It's kinda pitiful lol Great job my friend. God Bless, JB

    Nicely done. The sea and the sky have much in common...they can look the same, at certain times, and the actions of flying and swimming are so similar. An excellent piece of poetry. Regards, Robert.
