Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The End of Summer Blues
 



(photo of Lake Tahoe 2008)




Just for an instant,
One single stunning instant,


I’m eagerly eating
The last of the summer’s watermelons
And snacking on the last
Of the succulent black berries
Gracefully growing
On a wild summer’s vine


For just one sweet summer season
One wonderful summer’s season
I’m gratefully dancing,
Dancing in the sunshine
Loving it, in the summer’s sunshine
Holding onto it, and making it mine


In just one second,
One amazing single second
I’m eating the last
Of my melted ice cream
In my suddenly emptied spoon


And in just one fleeting moment
Just one swiftly fleeting moment
A beautiful summered morning
Turned itself
Into noon


Now, I’m seeing the sudden flurry
Of the ferocious
Winter’s fury
And oh, God
It just came
So soon,
So soon


So for now, I’m trading
All my brightest colors
For my darkest winter's clothing,
that smells suspiciously,
Of mildew’s
Mysterious musk


And now,
Now I’m just looking around
For an attitude adjustment,
And checking out
A new set of bifocals,
To change my focus


Now the summer's slowly ending,
And softly sighs
The evening breeze
But how dare they…


HOW DARE THEY?


Let it rain…

Let it rain…



In August?






Written and composed for:

Melissa's challenge phrase
'Summer's slowly ending'

~ and ~

Knightwriter’s All Star challenge phrase
(in/for/of) “an instant'

~ and ~

Darlene's phrase
'softly sighs the the evening breeze'



Dear friends, since several of you were wondering in the comment section if that was me in the photo, the answer is no, that was Dear Old Don. So I'm adding this photo of the TWO of us, on the same trip...



And thank you, for sharing this joy with us.
