In the Twilight of Summer

In the twilight of summer, cicadas sing of their glory 

yet the air is just a little cooler

over the water.

I’ll Be Resting in My Garden

20180731_124058

I’ll be resting in my garden with my eyes only half closed

dreaming, aware of the earth’s spin

and of poems floating

through the clouds.

I’ve decided to take a summer break, which for me does not include hiding on Instagram and Twitter!

I will still be here, only less often. In addition to trips to the beach and the mountains I will be on photographic journeys.

Did you know that was my other hobby?

I’m also making time for something I’ve really wanted to do……and that is reading, as in reading books!

Reading outside is even more amazing. Now where did I put my sunglasses?

Sweet Summer Memories

100_0890

In those waves where light seems to glitter,

ride memories

of a boy on a raft,

of body surfing, and wipe outs

and dreaming

of being old enough

to drive,

a Chevy of course

old enough to take Marianne

on a date……

would she want to dance?

Suddenly a seagull woke the old man….

squawking again

for a piece of bread.

He reached into the bag

and threw some crumbs in the air…..

longing for more

of his sweet summer memories.

Shining Brightly in the Sun

Oceans 184

Green and blue rolling, shining brightly in the sun

as the seagulls hover, expecting bread

the wind moving your straw hat,

in our beach chairs 

I watch you reading,

and I silently wonder

how I ever lived without you,

and again

you take my breath away,

so I pledge my life to you

all over again

silently.
