Gaudy Summer

Quadrille 11 – spill
De has us “spilling” things over at dVerse  Poets

`
Summer has spilled
quickly
into spring bringing
with it the flip flops
and sleeveless shirts
that were packed away
last year
Loud, gaudy summer has
taken over – pushing its
way into bright glaring
mornings and humid nights
pushing aside the gentleness
of spring

Pretty Petals

Mini Challenge in the Garden
Eerie Nursery Rhymes

Pretty Petals

Come pick some pretty flowers
from my backyard garden dear
the scents are quite alluring
oh, there’s nothing you should fear

Come pick some pretty flowers
maybe taste a dainty bloom
but should you choose unwisely
I’ll toss petals on your tomb

Dog Days

I long for the “dog days” of summer
hot days with nothing to do
when daydreaming
is a valid past time
days of long afternoon naps
and tall glasses of iced tea
that leave a cooling wet ring
on my bare leg
nights that come slowly
as we sit on the porch swing
listening to an improvised
concert by crickets and frogs

Lost In Dreams

At d’Verse Poets, Mish  has us singing our own tune,

Lost In Dreams

I follow the path
laid out for me
eyes wide open
but heart clenched tight
and when the sun goes down
I get lost in dreams

I spend each day
as others see fit
like a mannequin
no thoughts or feelings
and when the sun goes down
I get lost in dreams

I speak in words
that are not mine
opinions muted
until the day ends
and when the sun goes down
I get lost in dreams

I’m lost in dreams of you
lost in dreams of you
