Summertime: that's when all is hot and dry,
The sea is calm, and beneath a shade we lie,
Then it is time to go for a cool dip.
After which a long cold drink we will sip.

The ice-cream vendor slowly passes by

Summer sun bakes the desert hot rocks near sand
Swimming pool, cool decking, green grass welcomes
Warmest season, diving board jump and splash
Smiles, laughter, enjoyment; now lunchtime chips and dip, with yummy ginger ale hums.

Sky blue, vivid green, sunshine yellow settle on...Read More

Premium Member Kidnapped by Aliens
They had kept me imprisoned there for three full days,
In that sparse, solitary room, of scarce sunshine rays.

Having good food to eat, had never been a problem; 
They brought hot meals, but the problem was boredom!

At least, they had the...Read More

Throw bold differences that inspire our colorblind eyes and cast themselves out of their opaque truth and discover feeling reality
Everyone feels the crimson hatred that we all burn this world with
Just as the icy blues that we all shatter the...Read More

Summertimes are spent in the orchard of apples and pears
The old wooden rope swing; all frayed, from over the years

Hazy days in the summer house, watching the children play
Puppy dogs running around chasing the butterflies all a gay

Homemade lemonade...Read More

Sad eye lady,
don’t be afraid to come to me
Let your past tears
fall upon my shoulders freely
My embrace, please don’t shun

Only bad things seem to ever happen

June magic, in the form of a scrolling woman, wise.
Bringing silver crescent moon closer in our eyes.
Sprinkling trees with faerie princess aluminum spark.
Enjoying white bark’s daisy followers, illuminating dark.

Blowing in with wind from...Read More

Squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine
Crashing surf brings fresh crustaceans ashore
Flocks of gulls scavenge in the summertime
Seen diving and fighting, hoping to score

A rogue wave sends a feeding pair in flight

Premium Member The Street of Roses
On this street, they only grow roses,
Way down south, where summertime dozes,
By a mutually pleasing, neighborly pact,
The effect of which is a stunning impact!

The Street of Roses is famed for beauty!
For roses purple, gold, orange, and ruby.
For arbors, fountains, statues...Read More

I love the colors, so vivid and bright,
Bringing springtime into my sight
Flowers so flamboyant they delight
Amid nature’s promise, all in white

Of lawn, tree and plants that embraces

I'm Hanging On To Summertime
I'm hanging on to summertime
like monkeys hanging on a vine,
like kitty cats on old screen doors,
like winter snows in Labrador,
like spiders on a silken thread,
like bellies that were overfed,
like kites trapped in an apple tree,
but Fall will come eventually....Read More

Summertime is on vacay and winters on it's way,
but in-between those little months fall takes it's place,
breaking leaves fall off the trees and crowd the walk ways,
a crunching sound step by step, a step i'd like to take,

At the edge of a wood, in days of summertime,
Lived Hansel and Gretel, once upon a time;
Whose dear father, a poor woodcutter,
Could no longer earn their bread and butter.
Late one night, a conversation overheard--
As from sleeping, the children had been...Read More

Premium Member The Unwitting Days of Autumn
The unwitting days of Autumn,
And the carefree days of Fall—
They bid farewell to Summertime,
And without a care, at all.

And were the Fall to think a thought,
Whatever would it be?
Other than to contemplate 
Which of all the leaves to free.

We drove along the secondary streets of Iowa,
Towards my grandparents’ large farm.  
How excited we felt for this seemed like a yearly pilgrimage
To visit my old folks back home.

Like An Autumn Sun
 I  thought I had forgotten
the end of summertime,
I thought I stopped remembering
that last night you were mine.

Moments side by side
before fresh petals dried.

But like an autumn sun in skies of blue,
Low I sink in you.
Recalling our slow dance

Fool's fall
Fool’s fall morning feels like summertime day.
How can we be deceived by the seasons?
Our world spinning round and round and round. 
Tricking our minds, changing our thoughts.
Am I the only one who sees it all?
Feeling like winter, then summer again.
