Poetry and Musings

Check out: Kaylann‘s awesome poetry contest with the theme of summer. Be sure to follow her as well! 🙂


Summer dresses weave their way through summer

Iced teas are dripping on the sides from heat

Many people take trips to the sandy beaches


Excited kids out are of school

Pestering their parents

Many parents wish school started back in July


These summers breeze through fast

As fast as trees lose their leaves in autumn

Nothing compares to the warmth of summer family days

Or carefree summer days with friends

Oh, how the sun shines on these radiant days


Wishing every day was summer is silly

It’s like hoping the earth never tilts

My hemisphere always faces towards the sun

As soon as autumn comes, I put my sandals away

And get ready for hibernation; waiting another year
