Day in the Life of a Late Summer Day

Sleep.. indigo’s eyes, night loving allies, Sol’s flare is stars' disguise dawn till dusk’s reprise, peach awe-inspired skies effuse juice sunrise, east, grapefruit pink lies - lemon slice rhapsodize. Pastel wash replies to Zephyrus sighs, morning glory highs yield to afternoon’s surprise.. wings golden butterfly's, squires sun clockwise, ruddy west implies cocktail hour’s devise, sunlight’s demise creeps in blueberry dyes, plum, mango fraternize as prim-rose chastise. Sunset complies sending signal-light fireflies, Wake! indigo’s eyes, night loving allies, tantalize poets to romanticize.

Aw, my dear Gerson, thank you for the generous beauty of your comments. I am humbled by your wonderful thoughts. A 'poetic enchantress' is only enchanting if the reader has an enchanted imagination.. which you certainly possess, my inspiring friend. Your sweetness and light is treasured. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

So many scrumptious metaphors here, Susan, I really like 'lemon slice rhapsodize' and 'plum, mango fraternize' - my favorite part of summer is the bounty of fruit and this has me drooling for more - many congratulations on your win!

What beautiful colorful imagery, Susan! I wonder if at one time in your life you attended art school! I could visualize how your paintings would be...splashes of vivid colours, bold, warm and soothing according to your mood. Your Monorhyme flows exquisitly; both internal and end rhymes are rich and musical. Warm regards // paul

Paul, your instincts are astute. Yes, in the first third of my life, I immersed myself in drawing, painting and print-making. I was a fine arts major in college as well, hence my love of color. These days however I prefer to express myself with words and linguistic imagery instead, but sometimes think about dabbling again in paints (when I retire and have more time :) Thank you for your 'exquisite' comments. That you enjoyed my poem pleases me and brings out my smile. Your insightful musings mean the world to me my delightful friend. Warmest wishes.~Susan

This is one enjoyable, delightful read, Susan. You did a beautiful poetic scat samba on this bouncy treat. My kind of poetry let me tell you. Wonderful poem. Lively and oh so aurora bright ... a poetic coat of many colors. A true gemstone poem. Love and peace always.

Methinks, a magical poetess stirred you in your sleep to create this awesome mono rhyme and when you woke up you didn't't remember writing it (NOT) Great Write, Susan, i'm a fan.

A vivid and awe inspiring poem. I love how the key rhyme is in the middle and end of each line. Bouncing the reader back and forth with great imagery. Fantastic read! :^)

Hi Vijay, thank you so very much for your kind comment. Yes, I think our imaginations are stirred by stars, dawns and dusks and that they encourage our muse... so muse on with the stars my poetic friend! Much appreciation for the visit. :)
