Summer Delights

Summer skies are colorful delights As fireflies light up our warm nights The full moon shines clear and bright A relaxing, peaceful and serene sight Goldfinches, and nuthatches are out Happily eating seeds and dancing about As crows and hawks circle around Watching for prey on the ground Peonies with their saucer sized blooms Bees busy feeding landing on plumes Hummingbirds fighting for feeder nectar An entertaining show of feisty collectors Late evening after all the traffic’s gone A loon is heard with its eerie mating song The leaves rustle in the fragrant breeze As the songbirds quietly nestle in the trees Morning sunrise peaks in hot pinks and light blues Perennial flowers blooming in all colors and hues Sitting outside with my coffee and no place to go I sit back and relax and enjoy the magnificent show 8/12/2020 Contest: Nature Rhyming Poetry Contest Sponsor: Brenda Chiri

A powerfully worded bunch of rhymes - continually nectared with felicitously picked sets of homogeneous sounds to the very sweet-nuanced ending. I feel this is such a robustly natural-sounding rhyming effort, the message holding ever steadfastly stronger over the indisputably taxing putting in of similar-sounding last words from one line to the next...should do endurably fine, if for contesting purposes woven. Congratulations!
