Summers End

gone are the hot beach days 
lounging back 
sipping a rum and coke 
where romance found a silver spoon 
while the stars above sang your name 
time is running away 
and we go along with it 
no treading softly 
as yellow leaves flutter to the ground 
without a sound 
to meet their parched end 
shadows embrace lovers 
knowing they will never feel the same 
let’s pretend it’s not the end 
raise your glasses in the air 
as parties are dying down 
meet the fall of summer with 

Contest: End of Summer

    It is a summer moment when summer memories end. As children summer lasted forever, as we get older they pass too quickly. A wonderful way to remember =)
