Summer Lacings

Summer’s seasoned lacings, all fetching, uplift timid heartbeats with etchings. Sunshine warmly touches me sky brushed. Languid summer holds playtime sketching. Touching water’s velvet soft richness, sensuously tender in thickness, captivates my deepest of senses. Water must thrill summer as mistress. Delight I hold when my garden shines with produce sun thriving on green vines. Sorrow stirs when garden grows dirt-dim from Autumns push upon summer lines. No coat, no sweater – summer bare feet – dressing is a bit of style pieced sweet. Summer freedom within her Eden lifts my joy on high inside complete. Horseshoes, croquet, hiking on park trails, fishing, crabbing, grilling lobster tails - all eases for adult stressed creases, all pieces of summer’s bright details. In summertime, I am a thrilled child innocently day tripping beguiled thru exciting treasures season swayed until autumn shades persuade sun’s exile. ... CayCay Jennings 9-30-18

oh, Caycay this must be the one going unappreciated being that you needed to hurriedly post up the latest poem for a contest. This is exceptional work from you. So pretty!! I did mine too but only three verses and totally revolving around the sun(double word play there)!!!
