Mother Nature's Favorite Season

Silent stars start to shine in heat like burnished gold-
The weather is quite temperate tonight; a mild tangerine 
eventide setting of the sun has brought a new lease on life. 
Untrimmed cherry blossoms in the shade sway outside 
the gazebo my late sister made by hand-
      (and it is still my most prized possession from heaven)

Peony buds are flourishing this time of year in Michigan.
They always have the most lovely complexion-
slightly pink with shades of red hues; gleaming under the 
heat at noon.

Grains of soft sand sift through my bare toes-
sweet surrender along pebbled shores with reveries flowing
into eternal cosmic grace. 
                                  (brilliantly splendid)

       ~Silent Stars start to shine in heat like burnished gold-
         soon the soft essence of Autumn shall begin to unfold~

Excellent job interwoven with very personal touches. As beautiful as each line is, the poem brought me down because it reminded me that summer is almost over and I DONT WANT THAT. Seriously, seamlessly flowing imagery captivated me. Poetry hugs ... CayCay
