As Lovers Go

When Summer starts her transitory reign, King Sun, her beau, has steadily ascended, brightening a sky that, for a time, shall be his lovely mistress’ domain. He reaches out his welcoming warm rays across the span of Summer’s first official day, lengthening them just as far as he is allowed so he may well receive his paramour, enveloping her in the fullest of his golden grand embraces. But when night descends, Sun’s power wanes. His wife, a goddess, the fair and steadfast Luna, arrives to spell her king, along with her attendants, a host of radiant stars. Meanwhile, Mistress Summer softly slumbers, faintly breathing out the warmth that Sun has wrapped her in. So even in the dark’s coolness, she prevails. In the dewy dawn, when she awakes, Summer sees the beauty of her lover’s light and eagerly, she spurs her King Sun on. No two were ever so well-matched as these, for both heat up the days with their consuming ardor till the time of the equinox when Summer is exiled for nine months, to have her rebirth in the following year. And year after year, for what could be eternity, Sun bides his time, for he has many lovers. . . But as lovers go, it’s Summer who’s most expert at inciting the passion in his soul. by andrea dietrich/ Motif is nature. Also romance For the Impress Me Contest III of Giorgio V.

    Sexy summer swings her hips as ole man sun just licks his lips. She is the one to strike his fancy. That's why in winter, he gets so antsy. :)

    Andrea, I enjoyed reading this very much. You combined so much in an enchanting way. Thanks for your comment. I have always thought that even wonderful things have an element of sadness. There is no up without down.

    Holy cow Andrea!! This is SENSATIONAL! A prime example of the comment I left on another one of your poems, you never fail to paint such a gorgeous picture in your poems. I love this and now I am yearning for the warm sun on this cold winter day

    Thanks for the encouragement. I just posted a bunch of Haiku - maybe they are Senryu, not sure. Let me know what you think. They're the best I can do this point, but I'm not happy with them. Love, daver

    I love the way you have personified the sun, the moon, and summer. It's a great piece you have written here. And it stirs up questions in my mind of all that nuances and emotions through out each season.

    Andrea, lol..yes men are so fickle... one minute they are enjoying true love, then summer happens ... they start sprouting lust... love this...PD

    Oh, wow, this is a real work of art! It seems we were on the same wavelength this week, imagining the seasons as people. This would be great for the personification contest!

    Ah yes! Your poem warms me, what with these early days of approaching winter. I'm in a complete doldrums, trying to produce some Christmas poetry and having little luck. Really, one shouldn't have trouble being inspired at this time of year, but I continue to wait. Hope you are in good shape and having wonderful adventures. LOve, daver
