Summer's Face


Summer’s face
Is seductively strong
Like a flame etched
In blue skies
Expanding and pregnant
Upon our faces
Our bodies are wax
Beneath her burning face
We are pools of water
Seeking our own shadows
Summer is red and jubilant
Her weight and breath
Is inescapable
Hot with summertime romance

It is not the heat but the warmth of summer that I miss the most.

Very nice WG! Bravo! I see your blog is growing and standing strong. I was one of you first followers and love what you have done.

Thanks for all the kind comments you have left me and I am sorry I don't get around as much as I should.
